Who's Who Legal Australia - Competition

Elizabeth is a partner in Gilbert + Tobin’s competition and regulation practice.

Elizabeth advises on enforcement and cartel litigation and investigations, merger clearances, and ongoing strategic and operational counselling. Her practice includes a particular focus on multi-jurisdictional matters and spans a range of industries including financial services, resources, infrastructure, technology, retail and hospitality.

For example, Elizabeth was recently the lead lawyer advising Anheuser-Busch InBev NV/SA (ABI) in successfully obtaining unconditional Australian merger clearance for the proposed global takeover of SABMiller, which is the largest beer merger in history to date and one of the largest corporate takeovers (named Matter of the Year at the 2017 GCR Awards and International Deal of the Year at the 2017 Australasian Law Awards). Elizabeth is also currently defending Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K-Line), a major global shipping line, in a landmark criminal cartel prosecution, which is the first contested criminal cartel prosecution in Australia since the introduction of criminal cartel laws in 2009.

Elizabeth provides ongoing advice to a range of clients including Westpac Bank, Wesfarmers Group, Carnival Australia, BlueScope Steel, Maersk and Svitzer.

Elizabeth is recognised as a leading competition lawyer in Australia by Best LawyersThe Legal 500and Chambers Asia-Pacific. In particular, Chambers Asia-Pacific 2017 states that Elizabeth has “a rich understanding of competition/antitrust law and is very commercial when developing solutions”.

She is also a vice chair of the international antitrust committee of the American Bar Association’s section of international law, and is involved in many of the committee’s speaking and writing activities. She obtained an LLM from New York University where she won the antitrust prize. She also holds a BA (German, and government and international relations), and an LLB (honours) from the University of Sydney.

Elizabeth is admitted to the Bar of New York and in Australia.

WWL says: Elizabeth Avery is internationally renowned who one source considers “a go-to practitioner” thanks to her broad practice covering enforcement and investigations, as well as merger review and advisory work.
