Glenn returned to Bell Gully in early 2012, bringing a wealth of international experience to the team. Glenn advises on all aspects of competition law, having assisted clients with large-scale cartel investigations and advised on misuse of market power issues. Prior to returning to Bell Gully, he was a managing associate in the London office of a leading magic circle firm, where he advised clients on the competition aspects of global M&A transactions, including Rio Tinto on its acquisition of Canadian aluminium producer Alcan and its proposed iron ore joint venture with BHP Billiton. Since returning to New Zealand, Glenn has advised Vodafone on its successful application for clearance to acquire TelstraClear (a transaction that combined New Zealand's second and third largest telcos) and Bauer Media on its acquisition of rival magazine titles, in addition to providing a range of advice on mergers and behavioural issues to many of New Zealand's largest companies.
