Competition Litigation

Follow on and standalone damages litigation following a breach of EU competition law is on the rise.

Competition Litigation

Overview

Competition litigation presents unique legal and reputational challenges. In the face of rapidly-evolving law in this area and litigation of significant scale, we offer the legal firepower needed to protect your interests. Our team is highly experienced and operates at the cutting edge of the most significant competition disputes.

We act for defendants to some of the highest-profile follow-on damages claims before the English Courts, in particular claims resulting from prior European Commission decisions. We also advise clients on actions for damages, or other relief, following a breach of competition law by a third party.

In addition, clients instruct us to represent them in appeals against competition authority decisions and on competition issues arising from broader commercial disputes. When competition disputes have an international element, as they often do, we routinely co-ordinate our work with leading overseas law firms.

We are unrelentingly focussed on getting the right solution for you and meeting your commercial objectives.  We advise pragmatically, drawing on our years of experience of navigating complex claims through the Courts and engaging with competition authorities.

Our Competition Disputes group is made up of multi-disciplinary specialists which, in line with our approach across the firm, ensures that you have expert advice on every aspect of your case.
