We provide advice on economics issues for competition policy.
These areas are set out in more detail below.
We can advise on inquiries into alleged breaches of competition law or State aid rules. We can work for Government bodies, companies subject to an inquiry, or complainants.
We can help companies seeking to merge, or opponents of proposed mergers or joint ventures, to put their case to the relevant regulators.
We are familiar with economic regulation processes in the UK. We know about the way in which administrative authorities — e.g. the Competition Commission or sector regulators — sometimes become responsible for competition policy decisions, and how they approach these tasks.
In all the areas above, we can explain regulation and competition policy issues, processes and prospects to investors in affected companies, and to those considering future investments.
