About 25 guests joined us on Wednesday, 13 June for a very informative Evening Forum on the New Competition Law, hosted by our valued member Johnson, Winter & Slattery.
Guests were welcomed with a wonderful view across Melbourne whilst getting to know the other participants over some drinks and canapes.
Tina Thoms, Manager of the Melbourne Branch of the German-Australian Chamber of Industry and Commerce, opened the evening by welcoming all guests and thanking Dr Wolfgang Hellmann from Johnson, Winter & Slattery for hosting the event. She introduced Wolfgang as one of THE experts in competition law in Australia with an emphasis on domestic and global merger control, cartel cases and antitrust compliance.
Wolfgang then gave a comprehensive overview of the topic with very interesting and engaging real-life examples. To ensure that the guests also receive insights from a company perspective, Wolfgang invited Ben Lee, General Counsel at Mercedes-Benz Australia/Pacific Pty Ltd to share his view. It was a very engaging discussion and many of the guests asked Wolfgang and Ben questions and discussed certain aspects in more detail.
The evening concluded with more networking.
We would like to thank both speakers for their time and efforts and of course Johnson, Winter & Slattery for hosting the event and providing some wonderful catering.
