Practice Areas

Pat has specialised in EU law and competition law since the 1980s, handling landmark cases at EU and national level and helping clients from all over the world with their competition law needs.

Recognised as a leading adviser on the legal and policy issues that come up when competition law and intellectual property law meet, many of Pat’s clients are in technology rich sectors.

Pat works with clients on transactions and complex agreements (including settlement, R&D, licensing and joint venture agreements) in all sectors, with a focus on high tech and pharma/life sciences. Given the confidentiality concerns that are prevalent in innovative industries, Pat has substantial experience of advising on competition law in arbitrations, as well as before the competition authorities in Brussels and London and in Court proceedings at national and EU level.

Pat advises regularly on the competition law responsibilities of dominant companies – particularly where IP is concerned. She and her team help with competition compliance and "dawn raids", supporting clients through such dawn raids and their aftermath.
