Keeping your business ahead.
Staying on top of competition law has become imperative for all businesses as the legislative framework surrounding it continues to evolve and increasingly significant fines for non-compliance are imposed by regulators. Whether you are looking to ensure your business is fully compliant with competition law or seeking to defend your market position by challenging the anti-competitive behaviour of others, you should work with a legal team with the expertise to navigate the changing landscape and support you in fulfilling your commercial objectives.
Our Competition & antitrust team advises domestic and international businesses across a wide range of industries on complex, high-value damages claims where they have suffered losses from the anti-competitive behaviour of others, be they competitors, customers or suppliers. We specialise on the behavioural side of competition law which encompasses alleged infringements of anticompetitive agreements or abuses of dominance. We assist in actions either as standalone claims or following on from a regulatory decision of infringement, where we have experience with group actions and the proactive obtaining of litigation funding.
Our team will work with you closely, developing an in-depth understanding of the workings of your organisation, the market you operate in and the circumstances of your potential claim. We will then develop a tailored, innovative plan of action, in line with your wider commercial strategy, to resolve your claim and move your business forward.
We also advise businesses on compliance with competition law and in investigations of potential non-compliance, including during and in the aftermath of dawn raids. We understand that competition investigations can be distressing, carrying the risk of considerable penalties, criminal sanction of individuals, directors’ disqualification and significant reputational damage for your business. Our team will guide you effectively and pragmatically through the process, working with our colleagues in Corporate reputation management where appropriate, to provide you with clear and practical advice throughout.
