White & Case appoints antitrust partner from Allen & Overy

White & Case has strengthened its global antitrust practice with the appointment of Stefanie Benson to the role of partner.

Benson joins the firm’s Sydney office after a tenure at Allen & Overy that spanned over a decade. She also held associate positions at Mallesons Stephen Jaques (now King and Wood Mallesons) and KPMG Legal.

She is a competition and regulatory lawyer who regularly acts on multi-jurisdictional merger clearances, cross-border cartel investigations, Australian consumer law matters, and infrastructure access. She also has extensive expertise in obtaining regulatory clearances.

She advises multi-national corporations, digital platforms, and financial institutions on their dealings with antitrust agencies across Australia and Asia. She also assists numerous clients in navigating newly established competition regimes in the Asia Pacific region.

Throughout her legal career, Benson has represented clients in a broad range of sectors, including technology, financial services, energy and resources, ports, rail, aviation, health, agriculture, and food manufacturing.

"The antitrust environment in the Asia-Pacific region continues to intensify,” said Mark Gidley, partner and global antitrust practice head at Allen & Overy. “The current merger wave impacts core Australian sectors, such as energy, infrastructure, and technology. This wave requires in-country experience, and the addition of Stefanie will allow us to advocate for companies in Australia and Asia-Pacific and coordinate with our global merger practice.”
