Luke is the head of Gilbert + Tobin’s competition and regulation practice.

Luke has extensive experience across all aspects of competition law: merger clearances, joint venture and alliance restructuring, enforcement and cartel matters, as well as the regulation of monopoly infrastructure industries.

He is consistently ranked as one of Australia’s leading competition and regulatory lawyers and is recognised by numerous directories and publications, including Who’s Who Legal: CompetitionChambers-Asia PacificThe Legal 500: Asia Pacific and Best Lawyers of Australia. In particular, Chambers Asia-Pacific 2017 states that Luke is “one of the key reasons for Gilbert + Tobin’s eminence in the competition sphere” and is valued by clients as a partner who “picks up on commercial issues very quickly, which makes his advice particularly on point”.

Luke’s long-standing clients include Virgin Australia, Fisher & Paykel, Network Ten, Jemena Energy Networks and Qube Logistics.

Luke has led a number of significant transactions including two of the most difficult and complex matters in Australia over the past 12 months: Qube Consortium’s A$9 billion Asciano takeover and the successful Sea Swift merger authorisation before the Australian Competition Tribunal. He is part of the Gilbert + Tobin team advising Tabcorp on its current application before the Tribunal to acquire Tatts.

Prior to joining Gilbert + Tobin, Luke was at various times general counsel, head of enforcement and compliance, and head of mergers and asset sales at the ACCC.

Luke has a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University, as well as a bachelor of economics degree and a bachelor of laws degree (honours) from the University of Sydney. Luke is a trustee of the Committee for Economic Development of Australia, and a member of the Law Council of Australia’s competition and consumer committee; the American Bar Association’s antitrust section; and the International Bar Association.
