UK Guide Rankings

Competition Law in London (Firms) Legal Rankings

Ranking Tables

The UK guide ranks both law firms and lawyers evidencing expertise in competition law, with an additional sub-table that recognises  solicitors for their expertise in antitrust litigation matters.

Work covered includes an array of antitrust matters, with a crucial aspect being the filing of mergers at both a domestic and European level, in addition to abuse of dominance and phase II merger investigations carried out by the CMA. EC behavioural investigations into anti-competitive behaviour, as well as FCA and EC cartel investigations, are also included within this section.

Private enforcement actions, particularly follow-on damages cases, and appeals against the imposition of fines before the CJEU, feature heavily in the section, with solicitors acting on behalf of European government bodies and competitor companies.

Law firms provide advice on competition issues that exist solely within the UK, in addition to those with European and global implications

A number of teams from large, international law firms appear at the top end of the rankings, including magic circle firms such as Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP, Linklaters and Slaughter and May.
