Blakes partner heads to Freehills

By Reporter|27 January 2012

After more than 20 years at Blake Dawson, competition and antitrust partner Daniel Preston has jumped ship to Freehills’ competition and market regulation team.

Named a leading lawyer in the competition and antitrust area in Chambers Global since 1997, Preston has extensive experience dealing with all aspects of competition and consumer protection law, including expertise in working on multi-jurisdictional competition issues.

Freehills CEO Gavin Bell said the firm had identified competition and market regulation as offering substantial opportunity for the firm, given some of the high-profile M&A deals that continue to face considerable scrutiny from the ACCC.

“Increasingly, a commercial law firm’s competition law offering is a strategically important way for it to secure transactions and other business for the firm generally,” said Bell. “At the same time, competition law continues to become more complex and there is a high demand for partners with deep experience in the area.”
