less than a minute read


Compass Lexecon expert Janusz Ordover provided economic consulting to the legal teams advising Vodafone Group Plc and Hutchison Telecommunications Ltd. in the proposed merger of their Australian mobile phone operations. In clearing the merger, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) agreed with Professor Ordover and focused on the increasing need for mobile network operators to have sufficient scale to be able to make significant investments in their network capabilities to provide high speed data services such as mobile broadband. Vodafone was represented by Linda Evans of Clayton Utz. Hutchison was represented by Fiona Crosbie of Allens Arthur Robinson.
