Belinda Harvey has been appointed as a partner within White & Case’s Sydney office, effective immediately. She joins from Norton Rose Fulbright, where she was also a partner. Prior to this, she worked in-house at the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

Ms Harvey takes to the firm’s global antitrust practice in her new role, bringing with her extensive experience advising both domestic and international clients.

Throughout her career, Ms Harvey has worked with clients across multiple sectors, including energy, infrastructure, pharmaceutical, financial services, technology, manufacturing, consumer products and aviation, on all aspects of antitrust matters, consumer law, and the regulation of essential services.

 
 

White & Case partner and head of the global antitrust practice Mark Gidley congratulated Ms Harvey on her appointment at the firm.

“The addition of Belinda following Stefanie Benson’s arrival in September sends a clear message to the Australia and wider Asia-Pacific market that we are establishing a stand-alone antitrust practice that can advise clients on the full breadth of antitrust and regulatory issues they face,” he said.

“This significant expansion in Asia-Pacific [region] will further bolster our global reputation as a leading antitrust practice, in addition to servicing the growing need for antitrust capabilities on the ground in the region.”

White & Case partner Donald Baker, a member of White & Case’s global executive committee, echoed a similar sentiment.

“Establishing an antitrust practice in Australia through our additions of Belinda and Stefanie significantly expands our ability to support our clients there and more broadly across Asia-Pacific [region], particularly in south-east Asia where the firm is extremely active,” Mr Baker said.

“On-the-ground antitrust capabilities in Australia will also support the further growth of our energy and technology global industry groups, allowing us to provide clients in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region with comprehensive support for multi-jurisdictional deals and global cartel and other investigations.

“Belinda’s arrival marks the sixth lateral partner addition in Australia in the past 18 months, demonstrating our continued commitment to growth there as we celebrate six years in the country.”
