Elsa is co-head of the firm’s competition and antitrust practice, and also co-head of the firm’s public policy practice. She regularly assists clients on complex antitrust matters, including merger control, global cartel and abuse of dominance investigations. She has also been involved in the drafting of antitrust legislation, codes, policies and regulatory frameworks for sectoral regimes in Singapore.
Elsa was recognised by Who’s Who Legal as ‘the top merger control practitioner in Singapore’ and ‘a leading name in the Singaporean market’, and was one of the only two economists named as a thought leader in North America and the rest of the world. Featured in the 100 elite women globally by GCR in multiple Women in Antitrust peer-nominated surveys, Elsa was also named amongst the 10 competition economists globally in GCR’s Women in Antitrust 2016: Economists. A pioneer member of the Competition Commission of Singapore, now known as the Competition and Consumer Commission of Singapore (CCCS), Elsa has since assisted on close to 90 per cent of the complex CCCS merger reviews requiring commitments, including mergers in the digital space (the SEEK/JobStreet case), and also on transactions particularly in the ride-hailing, music streaming and e-commerce sectors.
