Chambers Review

This content is provided by Chambers based on our research. Learn more about our methodology.

What the team is known for

Has recorded high-profile successes in the appeal of CMA decisions on excessive pricing in the pharmaceutical sector. Handles EU-level behavioural investigations, including cases that have the potential to attract substantial sanctions or that may have wider implications for the licensing and distribution of audio-visual content. Leverages the experience of key partners who formerly worked within the CMA to handle complex domestic merger filings, while the firm's wider network of offices facilitates the in-house coordination of pan-European or transatlantic merger filings. Also acts for defendants on cartel damages claims.

Strengths

Clients describe the team as "a pleasure to work with," noting that "their level of service is just excellent and they present everything in a user-friendly way."

Others emphasise: "We would not go elsewhere for merger work - it's a specific skill set and Clifford Chance deliver it incredibly well."

Work highlights

Represented Comcast in the EC's investigation into cross-border licensing of premium paid TV content.

Notable practitioners

Alex Nourry provides support that is "relentless with creativity," according to impressed clients who appreciate that "he gives a balanced view from the start." He advises on complex mergers and joint ventures and resulting competition issues.

Elizabeth Morony demonstrates substantial experience acting for clients in the financial services sector. She advises on contentious claims resulting from investigations on the part of both European and domestic competition regulators.

Greg Olsen acts on a broad range of competition matters, assisting clients with the competition aspects of complex transactions, as well as market investigations and licensing mandates. Clients appreciate that he "understands the market that we are working in."

Clients report that Jenine Hulsmann is "extremely intelligent and knowledgeable, very responsive and turns work around very quickly," and add that "her legal and strategic advice is excellent and very clear."
