Global law firm White & Case has expanded its global antitrust practice with the addition of Stefanie Benson as a partner in Sydney, a role in which she will advise domestic and international clients on the antitrust aspects of complex mergers and joint ventures, antitrust investigations and enforcement matters, as well as infrastructure access and obtaining regulatory clearances across the Asia-Pacific region.
She has experience advising clients in a number of sectors, including technology, financial services, energy and resources, ports, rail, aviation, health, agriculture and food manufacturing.
Benson joins White & Case from Allen & Overy, where she was counsel.
“The antitrust environment in the Asia-Pacific region continues to intensify,” says White & Case partner Mark Gidley, head of the global antitrust practice. “The current merger wave impacts core Australian sectors, such as energy, infrastructure and technology. This wave requires in-country experience, and the addition of Benson will allow us to advocate for companies in Australia and Asia-Pacific and coordinate with our global merger practice.”
