G + T loses competition to Jones Day

G + T loses competition to Jones Day

Gilbert + Tobin has suffered another partner loss with global firm Jones Day poaching the firm’s former competition partner to its Sydney office.

Nick Taylor’s move to Jones Day’s antitrust & competition practice was announced on 22 March.

With over 15 year’s experience, Taylor has served in government, reviewing mergers and asset sales for the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

"Nick's arrival is a significant addition to our global competition law practice, which now spans four continents,” said Phil Proger, the Washington-based partner who leads Jones Day's antitrust & competition group.

"With virtually every significant merger triggering multi-jurisdictional reviews and with cartel and other competition litigation increasingly spilling across borders, clients are looking to integrated law firms with a footprint in every major market for both strategic counsel and boots on the ground."

The bulk of Taylor's work has been in his native Australia, but he also has knowledge of many Asian competition regimes, including China (where he was seconded to King & Wood), India, Indonesia, Singapore, Korea, the Philippines, Pakistan and Vietnam.

He has also worked as an Asian competition law and policy specialist for the OECD, organising 15 training events for Asian competition authorities and judges. Since September 2009, Taylor has been working with the OECD as its representative on its joint venture with the Korean Government, the OECD-Korea Regional Centre for Competition Law.

"Nick's 15 years of experience on both the company and the government side will be an important asset for our clients seeking strategic advice on Australian competition law issues as well as providing world-class cartel defence capability," said Chris Ahern, partner-in-charge of the Sydney office.

Taylor has a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Economics from the University of Adelaide.
