Overview

Rajah & Tann Singapore’s Competition practice is a top-notch practice, which extends across South East Asia and beyond, advises a number of large conglomerates and multinational corporations from across the world. A team that handles every aspect of competition and trade laws from advisory and compliance to notifications and liaising with the regulators, and to disputes and resolution. The Team is rock solid known for providing real time business centric advice coupled with acute, high-quality and pointed legal advice the client can rely on to achieve its ends.

We were involved in every single merger matter in Singapore in 2020, and several large merger matters in 2021. We are also actively involved in every major investigation (which are confidential) to date. Apart from mergers and investigations, we have also a full plate advising on transactions where no notifications are eventually made in Singapore, as well as numerous guidance analysis and advises. We also undertake applications for Decision or Guidance, handle the full scope of compliance and training, as well as undertake leniency applications. We are always willing to challenge and push boundaries with the law, which in the Chicken cartel appeal, released in January 2021, our clients saw the highest reductions in penalties, with the Appeal Board overturning liability on critical issues – never seen before. Anandarajah was expressly acknowledged by the Board during the oral Decision on points of law argued.
