Businesses of all stripes must adjust to the evolving economic and environmental landscape, especially with the competition regulator ramping up its focus on key areas, argues one BigLaw partner.

On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Maddocks partner Shaun Temby to discuss how and why he enjoys his work in competition and consumer law, how and why there have been so many more prosecutions pertaining to cartel activity in recent times, what such prosecutions mean for lawyers working in this space, and how best to advise clients with regard to such a regulatory focus.

Mr Temby also unpacks the state of affairs around greenwashing activity and how the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is viewing this (alongside other regulators), how best to liaise with in-house legal teams about such greenwashing and broader environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns, the other headline regulatory enforcement priorities that the competition regulator is engaged in, how lawyers can perceive these, and his guidance for practitioners in this space moving forward.
