The Competitions and Markets Authority has recently published new advice on joint ventures between businesses and competition law.
Sound merger and acquisition strategies consider competition law from the outset, and our specialist team is here to assist you with planning for and delivering against your commercial objectives while avoiding costly and lengthy competition investigations.
We work with a range of businesses, helping them get to grips with this complex legal area. Our remit includes providing trade-related competition advice covering commercial arrangements, the conduct of firms that are dominant in a market, mergers and joint ventures, public procurement and State Aid.
The consequences of non-compliance are far-reaching. Our competition compliance programmes enable you to manage the risk of inadvertently infringing competition law, leading to financial and criminal sanctions, or the risk of directors of your business being disqualified.
And if the worst happens and your business is subject to a regulatory investigation, our on-site investigation service is here to help immediately – whenever and wherever you need us.
Our experienced team also advises on State Aid issues, acting for grantors of State Aid, recipients of assistance and aggrieved third parties.
Whatever your needs, we deliver straightforward advice and guidance that gives you clarity and understanding, so that you can continue to build your business with absolute confidence.
