Cicely has particular experience in advising clients who have a footprint in the Asia Pacific.
Cicely is a senior associate in our Competition group based in Sydney.
She specialises in competition and consumer law, having advised clients on the complex competition aspects of multi-jurisdictional and domestic mergers, investigations, authorisations, misuse of market power, restrictive agreements, regulatory compliance and consumer law matters. She has also advised international clients on foreign investment regulation.
Cicely's expertise spans a number of industries such as aviation, energy and resources, agriculture, financial services, technology, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, distribution and retailing. She has also prepared and delivered tailored in-house trade practices compliance programs for several global companies in these industries.
A particular focus of Cicely's practice is advising clients who have operations across the Asia Pacific. In conjunction with local counsel, Cicely advises clients on how to minimise competition law risk across their operations, especially in jurisdictions with developing competition law regimes. For example, Cicely was involved in one of the Malaysian Competition Commission's first investigations into cartel conduct following the commencement of the Malaysian competition law regime in 2012.
Prior to joining us, Cicely worked in the competition team of another leading international law firm and in the litigation team of a national Australian law firm."
