    Angie's practice covers a broad range of competition issues (from transactional to conduct issues/investigations) across Australia, Mainland China, Hong Kong, Singapore and the rest of the Asia Pacific region.  She has strong pan-Asian competition credentials, having spent a significant portion of her career in Beijing and Hong Kong; and having advised on the drafting and design of Hong Kong's competition law.  She brings depth to multi-jurisdictional merger filings for complex and large-scale transactions and cross-border investigations by combining international experience with "on-the-ground" local knowledge.

    Head of competition for APAC Peter Armitage commented:

    "Asia's competition law regimes and enforcement trends have been evolving rapidly in the last decade. The relocation of Angie allows us to serve our clients' needs better and advise them in a fast-changing regulatory environment. We expect that Angie will continue to play a significant role in capitalising on the many opportunities in Asia, strengthening our Asian offering and collectively, expanding our successful global competition practice into the region." 

    Angie added:

    "I am delighted to join the Singapore office and excited by the opportunities in Asia. Business in our Asia offices is vibrant and experiencing strong growth trajectories.  Our Asian based competition practice will complement and add bench strength to our existing capabilities. With my colleagues in Asia, I look forward to continue providing our clients with strategic and informed solutions so as to assist them to achieve commercial objectives."
