Competition Law

We advise on all aspects of this complex area, both in respect of UK and EU law representing clients in front of national and EU regulators. We also engage in regular contact with the Competition and Markets Authority with whom we have shared platforms as part of our lecturing and speaking commitments.

Our clients include a range of organisations, from national trade associations in the construction sector and professional bodies to commercial organisations operating in the agro-chemical field.

We regularly advise clients who wish to enter into potentially anti-competitive agreements and/or who hold dominant positions in their respective markets, helping them eliminate – or at least minimise – the risk of contravening relevant EU and UK prohibitions. Believing that prevention is better than cure, we frequently advise clients on how to establish and maintain competition law compliance programmes.

We also advise on a pro bono basis as the Head of our Competition Law team has served for some years on the United Kingdom Competition Law Pro Bono Scheme.
