The key members of our Rajah & Tann Singapore’s Competition practice team have worked together since the introduction of the Competition law in Singapore. It reflects a long-standing practice with tremendous depth that no other local firm can compare. The team’s in-depth knowledge of the law results in acute, high-quality and pointed advice the client can rely on, even in the most difficult cases.
Rajah & Tann Singapore is the firm of choice and is consulted by international law firms to provide advice on Singapore competition law, and, particularly on merger control issues. In Singapore, this includes advising foreign counsels on whether a transaction needs to be notified in Singapore and/or liaising as a local counsel with the Competition Commission of Singapore (“CCS”) in relation to a proposed transaction. In the region, the team assists clients and their external counsels in understanding the risks under newly implemented competition laws.
We are known by peers and the regulator even, to set precedents and/or good practices in all areas of competition law. Being acutely aware of competition and antitrust laws in foreign jurisdictions, the team has been able to introduce in Singapore certain standards of critical importance which have been recognised by the CCS. Our reputation makes us the counsel of choice for all forms and complexities of training and compliance programmes.
