Competition and regulatory
Our Competition & Regulatory team comprises lawyers across our European network, all with experience in acting for clients dealing with competition or regulatory authority investigations and litigation, as well as compliance issues.
Competition and regulatory issues have never been so important to businesses. Compliance is a challenge, but essential to avoid fines, damages actions and reputational damage. But competition and regulatory law is also often a strategic tool to gain competitive advantage through challenging competitors or regulators on business-critical issues.
We act for clients in a variety of industries, including technology businesses of all kinds, broadcasters, life-sciences companies, telecommunications operators, sports governing bodies, professional and industry associations and government departments.
As well as a commitment to technical excellence, we have significant experience in dealing with the European Commission, national competition authorities and sector regulators. We are recognised as one of the leading competition litigation practices.
As a result, we know how the authorities and the courts approach issues from both a procedural and policy perspective and we have the expertise to advise on how to structure transactions and to argue cases to maximum effect in securing your commercial objectives.
