Litigation


We are a market leading regulatory litigation practice with extensive experience in the Competition Appeal Tribunal, the Competition Commission, the Court of Appeal and in smaller, specialist Tribunals. 

Litigation requires brains and brawn; we bring both to the table. As well as our specialist regulatory and competition law expertise, we are now particularly recognised for our diligence and practicality in managing cases efficiently. The independent Chambers and Partners Directory notes that our lawyers are:

….best known for their assured representation of heavyweight clients before the Competition Appeal Tribunal.

We pride ourselves on effective instruction of experts and Counsel and on project management discipline, managing cases efficiently to a tight budget.


We are also well-known for our advice on the policy rationale behind regulatory appeals.  Our work on this subject – for a roster of prestigious clients – can be found on our publications page.


Our people have experience of the other side of regulatory litigation – the perspective of the regulator.  And we also have appeared in the witness box, both as expert witnesses and witnesses of fact.
