Zoe Odgers, Economist

What's New

Zoe leverages her experience as an economics teacher in combination with her command of advanced economic theory to distil and communicate practical steps to address complex economic problems.

Zoe joined our team in 2021 having completed a Master of Economic Analysis at the University of Sydney.

Zoe draws on her deep understanding of economics to assist in the development of economic frameworks to solve complex economic problems. She has experience applying economic principles in the context of legal proceedings, commercial negotiations and regulatory and competition matters in a number of sectors, including retail, healthcare, securities markets, insurance, ports, airports, railways, electricity and gas, and water. She has also assisted in matters relating to compensation for infringements of native title in Australia.

Zoe has assisted with the drafting and preparation of a broad range of expert evidence, including evidence that has been relied on in the Federal Court of Australia, Supreme Court of Victoria and Western Australia, the Australian Competition Tribunal, and in commercial negotiations in Australia and New Zealand.

Her experience in competition economics includes analysing the economic implications of mergers and acquisitions, as well as strategic market behaviour across various industries. She has assisted in providing economic analysis to support the application of the public benefits test and in assessing the potential risk of anti-competitive foreclosure strategies resulting from market transactions.

Prior to embarking on her postgraduate studies, Zoe worked in education and leadership development in the United Kingdom. The combination of Zoe’s economics training and education sector experience afford her excellent communication skills and an aptitude for clearly and concisely explaining complex economic problems and how best to approach them.
