With the ever-increasing enforcement of competition law throughout all sectors of the British economy, there is a growing need for all businesses to embed competition compliance throughout their operations.
For example, John Allan, Federation of Small Businesses National Chairman, is quoted as saying:
“Competition law is a crucial part of doing business in the UK … Competition policy applies to businesses of all sizes and we encourage our members and all small businesses to [educate themselves].”
Our competition lawyers have a wide range of competition law experience in a variety of industry sectors. We have worked in leading firms on competition damages claims, cartel investigations and also on a range of state aid matters.
Our lawyers have also developed systems to work with clients to enable them to become competition law compliant, on the principal that avoiding, or limiting, problems is infinitely preferable to litigation. The severe consequences of non-compliance mean that a review of businesses practices and the implementation of a competition compliance policy, before any problems arise, can be very cost effective. It can also help businesses in identifying where they may be victims of competition abuses.
