“She is a true pleasure to work with”


Gina is a senior partner in Gilbert + Tobin’s competition and regulation practice. Gina is repeatedly sought out by clients to provide advice on complex and cutting-edge work. She is known for achieving outstanding commercial results through innovative solutions and perseverance, even when previous applications for transaction clearance or dispute settlement have failed.

Gina has advised on some of the largest, most contentious and complex merger clearance matters for global and domestic acquisitions and joint ventures. Gina is currently advising together with Elizabeth Avery AB InBev in relation to the clearance process for the US$11.3 billion sale of AB InBev’s Australian business, Carlton and United Breweries (CUB), to Asahi. 

Gina has played critical and strategic roles for high-profile clients under ACCC’s enforcement and regulatory investigations. She is lead partner on a critical investigation for a confidential large listed company in relation to the ACCC’s investigation of alleged cartel conduct and commencement of civil proceedings. Over many years Gina has advised, represented and defended clients during ACCC investigations and secured no further action decisions and in certain matters negotiated administrative and court-based settlements.

Gina is also widely recognised as one of Australia’s leading advisers specialising in financial services regulatory advice and representing financial institutions and their industry associations before the ACCC, APRA, ASIC and AUSTRAC. Her expertise is evidenced by her re-appointment by the Commonwealth Treasurer to the Reserve Bank of Australia’s Payments System Board for a further five-year term (effective 1 August 2018). She was awarded the Best Lawyer award in the Beaton Client Choice Awards 2020.

Gina was a Fulbright scholar at the University of California, Berkeley, majoring in US competition law, financial institutions regulation and securities regulation.
