Mr Scott Clements
Competition & Antitrust
Scott is a competition law specialist with more than 12 years of experience in Singapore. He has extensive experience in relation to contentious and non-contentious competition law matters.
Scott was involved in the first set of appeals made to the Competition Appeal Board in respect of a cartel matter and in the appeal of the first ever abuse of dominance case. Scott has also assisted on multiple leniency filings made to the Competition Commission of Singapore, now known as the Competition and Consumer Commission of Singapore (“CCCS”) and assisted clients during dawn raids by the CCCS. He has advised on matters involving multi-billion dollar transactions, such as Gebr. Knauf KG’s acquisition of USG Corporation – a transaction valued at more than US$7 billion.
Scott is qualified as an advocate and solicitor of Singapore, and a barrister and solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand.
Graduated with degrees in both law and economics from Victoria University of New Zealand and holds a postgraduate degree in economics for competition law from King’s College London.
Allen & Gledhill LLP continues to be at the forefront of the region’s largest mergers and acquistions. It recently acted as lead counsel to Grab Inc on its purchase of Uber’s South-East Asia assets, including coordinating antitrust strategies across ten countries. The team also handles merger control filings with the Competition and Consumer Commission of Singapore (CCCS), investigations, and abuse of dominance matters. The practice is jointly headed by economics specialist Elsa Chen and Daren Shiau, who is ‘a well-known figure‘ for antitrust litigation, international cartels, merger control and sectoral competition regimes. Scott Clements‘ practice spans representation in cartel cases, investigations and leniency filings made to the CCCS and non-contentious competition work.
