What the team is known for

Eversheds Sutherland remains a popular choice for clients facing CMA or FCA investigations into alleged anti-competitive conduct. It is able to leverage competition law experts based both in London and in Leeds to serve clients across the UK. The team advises on merger control issues arising from M&A and the formation of joint ventures. It assists with the design of competition-compliant distribution systems and of structures to prevent the unlawful exchange of information between competitors. The firm also has broad litigation capabilities that increasingly cross over onto the claimant side of follow-on damages cases.
