Litigation and Contentious Issues

Our competition lawyers deliver creative solutions to clients’ problems.

Often this occurs in a situation where the client has been told that there is no basis for achieving their objectives or where the client has not thought of utilising competition law as a tool for achieving the outcome they wish to see.

This can involve “traditional” litigation before the UK or European courts, and our lawyers’ experience of such action is unrivalled in the region. It can also involve regulatory complaints and less direct approaches such as the formation of campaigns, pressure groups or trade associations.

Similarly, we will use this holistic approach to disputes to defend you against any allegation that you have acted in breach of competition law. Our team has successfully defended clients against allegations of anti-competitive behaviour in court proceedings and in regulatory investigations.

If you are concerned that your business is being treated unfairly, our competition team would be happy to discuss your options with you and recommend a plan of attack.

Our team’s experience includes:

  • Successfully defending Arriva plc in the High Court against allegations of anti competitive conduct made by Chester City Council
  • Successfully challenging, on competition law grounds in the High Court, an unfair award of a contract by Luton Airport
  • Bringing a petition before the European Parliament Petitions Committee
  • Acting for easyBus on an emergency application for judicial review of a private sector body seeking injunctive declaratory relief


We always deliver a high quality of service to all our clients. We believe thats why our clients love to work with us.
