Walker Morris hires Shaukat Ali as competition team director
Walker Morris has bolstered its competition team with the appointment of Shaukat Ali as a director.
According to the firm, the appointment is in response to a rise in client demand for competition law advice and follows a number of senior appointments to the team over the last 18 months.
Prior to joining the firm, Ali worked in the competition group at several city and national practices (in London, Brussels and Leeds), where he specialised in all aspects of UK and EU competition law, including merger control, cartels/restrictive agreements and abuse of market power.
Ali has acted before the UK and EU competition authorities in a variety of sectors such as financial services, retail, transport and construction, including a secondment with Diageo.
