 Australia: Are merger authorisations now practical? Competition Tribunal takes first merger authorisation decision under the current merger authorisation procedure
Mondaq Business Briefing, November 21, 2014 Friday

 To date, most merger clearances in Australia have involved a voluntary application for 'informal clearance' to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC). The option of applying directly to the Australian Competition Tribunal (the Tribunal) for a merger authorisation has always existed, but has generally been regarded as impractical within the dynamic commercial context of M&A transactions. However, on 25 June 2014, the Tribunal granted conditional authorisation for AGL Energy Limited's (AGL) high-profile Aus$1.5bn acquisition of the assets of Macquarie Generation (MacGen).1 The decision is the first merger authorisation decision under the current merger authorisation procedure. The decision illustrates that merger authorisation is a practical alternative for certain M&A transactions. This article provides a brief overview of the AGL decision and provides key insights into the merger authorisation procedure. It will be of current or future interest to anyone involved in Australian M&A transactions that raise material competition concerns.

 Panel slams rlys' plan to tweak compensation rules

 A former judge of the Mumbai bench of the Railway Claims Tribunal (RCT), S Ananthanarayan, has slammed the railway ministry's plans to tweak compensation rules for accident victims in such a way as to absolve the railways of responsibility if the mishap was due to victim's mistake.

 Australia: Insurance brokers successfully defend $10 million negligence claim
Mondaq Business Briefing, November 5, 2014 Wednesday

 No duty of care found to have been owed; causation of loss not established After a chemical fire, a company and director found they held no insurance policy which would respond to their claim to recover outlays of over $10 million relating to the clean-up. They commenced proceedings against insurance brokers, alleging negligence in the handling of their insurance affairs. However, a Queensland Supreme Court ruling entered judgment for the brokers, holding that the plaintiffs were not owed any duty of care by those brokers and also that the plaintiffs had failed to prove that any breach of the tortious duty they had argued could have caused them loss. Key Points  While an insurance broker is obliged to take reasonable care in providing broking services to the entity with which it contracts, only in extraordinary circumstances would the broker have a duty of care to a related third party to investigate and provide advice on their insurance requirements.Liability insurance policies which provided indemnity for an insured's liability to pay compensation in respect of claims made against the insured could not respond to the remediation costs incurred by the insured in respect of their own property.
