Susie Kilty - Buddle Findlay

Within: Competition law

Buddle Findlay acts for public sector entities and large corporates in regulatory and merger clearance matters. Competition, overseas investment and economic regulation specialist Susie Kilty and Tony Dellow, whose early career included a stint at the New Zealand Ministry of Commerce, lead the practice from Wellington. They recently advised Toyota on its project to move to a new distribution model, which raised questions about the company's exposure under the Commerce Act and about the stance of the courts on new cartel prohibition regulations. Senior associate Jessica White, who joined from Minter Ellison in Australia, is also recommended. Litigator Laura O’Gorman in Auckland assisted Dellow with the Electricity Authority's proposals to introduce a default distributor agreement in order to promote competition in electricity retail markets. CRV Limited, Sky Television and the Ministry of Health are among the firm's clients.
