Who's Who Legal Competition: Lawyers

Chris Charter is a director and national head of our competition practice. Chris’ practice covers all aspects of the discipline from merger control to prohibited practices. On the prohibited practices side, bringing and defending complaints, writing opinions, corporate leniency and compliance work are all covered. Chris has advised in mergers and enforcement action involving major South African listed companies and has advised a number of global companies in obtaining South African and African regulatory clearance in respect of multinational transactions.

His competition work spans a vast variety of industries, including telecommunications, construction, banking, mining, airlines, healthcare, grocery wholesale and retail, petroleum, fast moving consumer goods and financial services.

Chris also has experience with competition regulation in a number of African jurisdictions. Although now specialising in competition law, Chris has a strong background in corporate and commercial law which greatly assists clients in marrying competition law with commercial reality.

After time spent at PricewaterhouseCoopers London, Chris began his legal career as a candidate attorney at Cliffe Dekker (now Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr) in 2001. He became an associate in 2003 and was promoted to senior associate in 2005. In 2007 Chris became a director.

WWL says: Sources describe Chris Charter as a "very smart and quick" practitioner, noting that he is "a pleasure to work with".
