A new partner has joined Jones Day’s antitrust and competition law practice in Australia.

Matthew Bull has spent 20 years honing his expertise in competition and regulatory law. He has acted for major corporations in the Australia and APAC regions, and has assisted in matters related to merger clearances, joint ventures and collaborations, infrastructure access, utility regulation and enforcement for multinational clients.

In particular, Bull has provided merger clearance advice for a wide range of industries, such as financial services, beverages, transport, construction, infrastructure and natural resources. He has also appeared before the ACCC in public reviews and inquiries into digital platforms, wine grapes, gas supply and the dairy sector.

Bull is also a member of the Law Council of Australia’s Competition and Consumer Committee.

“Matt brings us a deep understanding of competition issues and regulations across numerous industries,” said Jones Day Australia partner-in-charge Chris Ahern.

Bull has published works in relation to antitrust matters. He specialises in the energy sector and natural resources; moreover, he focuses on issues associated with access to rail and port infrastructure in addition to utility regulation.

Following his appointment, Bull has been working from Jones Day’s Brisbane office.

“As antitrust and competition issues continue to play a larger role in global commerce, our practice will benefit greatly from the addition of Matt,” said Craig Waldman, co-leader of Jones Day’s global antitrust and competition law practice. “He brings substantial experience to a very important region for antitrust enforcement.”

2020 has been off to a good start for the Brisbane branch, as Jones Day also welcomed new of counsel Joanne Dwyer in April.
