Who's Who Legal Competition: Economists

Greg Houston is a founding partner of HoustonKemp and an expert in the application of economics to assist high-stakes decision-making in competition, finance, policy and regulatory matters.

In the antitrust sphere, Greg is regularly sought to advise on the competitive effects of proposed merger transactions, and to provide expert testimony in antitrust enforcement proceedings. His evidence has been cited favourably in numerous proceedings before the Federal Court, the Competition Tribunal and in the decisions of Australian and international arbitrators.

On regulatory matters, Greg has played a substantial role in shaping the development of regulatory regimes governing communications, energy, transport and water services infrastructure in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. His clients in this area include governments, regulators, infrastructure service providers and trade associations.

Greg is also the foremost expert in the region on the application of economics to critical questions arising in securities class actions, insider trading and market manipulation matters. His evidence was accepted in one of the few wrongful disclosure matters to be tried to final judgment in the Federal Court.

Greg holds a first-class honours degree in economics from the University of Canterbury, and is a member of the competition and consumer committee of the Law Council of Australia.

WWL says: Greg Houston draws praise as a “commercial, experienced and respected” practitioner with an in-depth knowledge of the competitive effects of proposed merger transactions.
