Kings Chambers barrister Adam Aldred has nabbed the Australian Registration Certificate, which entitles him to advise Australian solicitors and their clients on competition law issues affecting them which have a UK or EU dimension.
According to a statement provided to Lawyers Weekly, this includes merger control, regulatory investigations, dominance, global litigation, international trading arrangements and compliance.
“I am pleased to be able to extend my practice so I can help Australian businesses too,” Mr Aldred said.
“Competition law is global. A huge number of Australian businesses, both large and small, operate on the global stage. With the Australian Registration Certificate, I can readily help Australian businesses and their solicitors when the competition law issues they face have a UK or EU element, as they often will.”
Gary Young, chief clerk at Kings Chambers, praised Mr Aldred, saying his expertise is a huge value-add to anyone he works alongside.
“This is fantastic news. We are a globally-minded set and we’re lucky to have barristers such as Adam who specialise in niche areas of practice and are committed to offering the best service to a high professional standard,” Mr Young said.
“Adam is very easy to work with. His advice can be sought on an ad hoc basis or he can be readily incorporated into a team for longer term projects.”
