Who's Who Legal Competition: Future Leaders - Partners

Simon is a partner in Gilbert + Tobin’s competition and regulation group and leads the Melbourne competition practice.  He specialises in competition law and regulated industries, with particular expertise across the energy, telecommunications, resources and transport sectors.

Simon advises extensively on infrastructure and access issues, including on access issues and disputes, pricing design, technical and economic regulation.

He regularly acts for clients in competition litigation, as well as merger and judicial review processes in regulated industries. He has extensive experience advising clients on merger clearances, ACCC investigations and enforcement matters as well as the design and, where necessary, authorisation of a range of collaborative arrangements as well as engagement with sectoral regulators.

Simon’s clients include Rio Tinto, Telstra, Jemena, Asahi-Schweppes, Tabcorp, DP World, Qube as well as state economic regulators (QCA and ESC).

Simon is recommended by Best Lawyers (2017 and 2018) for his work in competition law, regulatory practice, and telecommunications law. The Legal 500 (2016) notes that Simon Muys is “the reason why some clients start instructing the firm”. He is listed in the 2017 editions of Who’s Who Legal: Competition and Who’s Who Legal: Telecommunications Media & Technology.

Simon is a member of the competition and consumer committee of the Law Council and the Energy and Resources Law Association (AMPLA), and a member and former officer of the communications committee of the International Bar Association.

WWL says: Simon Muys impresses clients with "his clear, direct approach" which allows him to produce "to-the-point, focused solutions".
