Ring-fencing obligations

Ring-fencing obligations are often imposed on regulated companies to prevent anti-competitive conduct by appointed monopolies, and to ring-fence appointed businesses from involvement in commercial activities.

We have specific expertise in the analysis and design of such arrangements.

Furthermore, our wider knowledge of economic regulation and competition law ensures that we are able to identify quickly and efficiently the exact scope of the ring-fencing that is needed.

We can also advise on possible practical ways of achieving the aims of ring-fencing, on risks of difficulties in their implementation, and any unintended consequences that might result from some options for ring-fencing.

We have helped utility regulators and franchising authorities on the design and implementation of ring-fencing obligations for the particular circumstances of the operators that they oversee.
