Competition

From plc to SME, corporates to charities and the third sector, competition law applies to organisations which offer goods and services.

Much of UK law is based on underlying EU legislation but, no matter what the future holds, it’s definitely here to stay.

The UK has one of the best competition authorities in the world, the CMA, and its remit is only set to expand as we ‘go it alone’.

The CMA is willing to tackle any sector from pharmaceuticals to musical instruments, ophthalmologists to real estate agents. Were talking cartels, anti-competitive agreements, abuse of dominance, market investigations, merger control and State aid.

How we can help

What do you need? Perhaps good corporate governance dictates training and a compliance policy or maybe it’s more urgent – a competitor is threatening to complain to the CMA. We can help you refute spurious claims (and make sound ones when you’re being treated unfairly).

If you’re considering a JV or an acquisition, we can guide you through UK merger control. We help you navigate the complexities in a jargon-free, constructive manner so you can make the best decisions.

  • “Lindsay is a great competition lawyer, really helpful and goes the extra mile for her clients. She was able to quickly unravel some fairly complex matters in one of the trickiest areas of competition law, on tight timescales, and gave really pragmatic and commercial advice which was easy to understand and implement. Highly recommended.”
