Overview

Drew & Napier's Competition Law & Regulatory Practice, established in 1999, is the oldest and largest dedicated competition law practice in Singapore.

The Competition Law Practice Group, co-headed by Cavinder Bull, SC, and Lim Chong Kin, comprises an experienced and highly qualified team which handles competition and regulatory matters both generally under the Competition Act as well as in the carved-out sectors such as telecommunications, media, energy and post. Deputy Head, Dr Corinne Chew, holds a PhD in competition law and policy and has a decade of experience in all areas of competition law and regulatory practice.

Our Practice Group also possesses superior in-house competition economics expertise and our expert team comprises members who were previously from the competition authority. We are consistently recognised as the leading competition law practice in Singapore and are the preferred counsel of local companies, multi-national corporations, associations and government bodies for competition matters in Singapore and other ASEAN member countries.

We filed the first merger notification as well as the most number of notifications for decision relating to agreements and conduct under the Competition Act. We also successfully led appeals to the Competition Appeal Board (CAB).

We have worked on every noteworthy competition law-related matter in the telecommunications, media and postal sectors.
