Australia: Competition litigator joins K&L Gates

 |  April 25, 2016

Former Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) senior officer and competition litigator Ayman Guirguis has joined K&L Gates in Sydney.

Ayman Guirguis joins K&L Gates from independent Australian law firm Corrs Chambers Westgarth, where he spent four years and was head of that firm’s competition and regulatory group.

Prior to his role at Corrs, Guirguis spent 12 years at legacy firm Blake Dawson, leaving as that firm merged with London-headquartered Ashurst.

His experience also extends to working for Australia’s competition regulator, the ACCC, where he was a senior officer in its mergers branch for five years.

At K&L Gates, Guirguis will advise on merger clearance, and on the contentious side, will assist clients accused of cartel conduct by the ACCC.
