Overview

We act in the most high-profile competition cases in the UK and Europe.

Our clients include FTSE 100, FTSE 250 companies and global corporations.

We act on behalf of major enterprises on all aspects of competition litigation for claimants and defendants, specialising in claims relating to cartels or abuse of a dominant position. Our clients’ claims are often connected to regulatory decisions made by US, EU, UK and other national competition authorities. We advise clients by evaluating the benefits of taking action or defending claims brought or threatened against them.


Our team has cutting-edge expertise in this rapidly developing field. We have an impressive track record of successfully taking cases to trial in the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court. We remain the only law firm to have successfully acted for a group of claimants at trial and subsequent appeals in a competition damages context.

Our lawyers have unrivalled experience in putting together innovative costs arrangements. The use of third party funding, after-the-event insurance and risk-sharing fee agreements enables our clients to manage risk and litigate from a position of financial strength.


Most anti-competitive activity is on an international scale and we have strategic alliances with handpicked law firms around the world to enable our clients to take a cross-border approach to litigation.
