Biography • Competition - Lawyers

Elai leads Cahill’s antitrust practice and focuses his work on a wide range of antitrust law matters, including litigation, mergers and acquisitions, counselling and government investigations.

Elai has represented clients in a variety of antitrust disputes, including complex class actions alleging price fixing and monopolisation, as well as matters involving distribution arrangements and price discrimination. Significant representations include representation of a global bank in LIBOR-related litigation and investigations, defending online media companies in a suit alleging anticompetitive conduct in the setting of pay-per-click fees, and defending against exclusive dealing and monopolisation claims in NicSand v 3M before the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. He regularly advises clients on the formation of joint ventures, development of distribution and marketing arrangements and pricing policies, participation in trade association activities and interaction with competitors.

Elai has successfully guided a broad range of transactions through the antitrust regulatory review process in the United States and abroad. He has represented buyers and sellers, as well as financing sources and investors, in many industries, including financial services, insurance, chemical and pharmaceuticals, media and telecommunications, online retailing and others. Elai has a particularly strong record in obtaining quick and positive resolutions during the early phases of merger reviews and is particularly attuned to the role global antitrust review plays in negotiating and completing mergers and acquisitions.

Elai is recognised as a leading antitrust lawyer by Chambers USA, Benchmark Litigation and The International Who's Who of Competition Lawyers.

Elai joined Cahill as an associate in 1997 and became a partner in 2005.
