Practice area:


Gomolemo is a career competition law practitioner with an in-depth experience in competition laws of various African jurisdictions, including regional bodies such as COMESA. Her practice involves all facets of prohibited practices and merger control work across a range of industries within South Africa and across the African continent.

She has represented clients in complaints and the prosecution of cartels, abuses of dominance and other restrictive practices. She has advised clients in market inquiries, exemptions and dawn raids. She has worked on mergers of all sizes and represented parties in cross-border merger filings such as Botswana, COMESA, Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
Gomolemo was involved in the first successful hostile take-over of a JSE-listed entity which required cross-border notifications to Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland and Zambia. She successfully intervened and objected on behalf of a major customer of two suppliers involved in a two-to-one merger, which was ultimately prohibited by the South African competition authorities.
Her practice includes advisory work, audits, and compliance training.  She frequently publishes articles on topical issues relating to competition law.
Gomolemo did her articles at Webber Wentzel. She subsequently joined Bowman Gilfillan Inc, where she was an equity director for a number of years until she left to consult on various aspects of competition law.
