Competition Law

Our Consumer Protection and Competition Law department has substantial experience and has assisted clients in various consumer and competition-related matters. These include preparing and lodging filings, preparing and prosecuting complaints and assisting clients in competition investigations; as well as drafting industry codes in terms of the Consumer Protection Act (CPA). We regularly furnish advice and opinions on all consumer and competition related issues which arise in the course of the conclusion of large commercial transactions. The firm has completed no less than seven filings within the last two years, six of which involved major listed companies. We have also assisted in the restructuring of franchise agreements for Franchisors, locally and into Africa, and continuously keep Franchisors abreast of all developments in their respective sector.
