Market investigations (sector-wide reviews)

It is now easier than ever for competition authorities to undertake investigations of entire market sectors rather than simply investigate the anti-competitive conduct of particular companies within those markets.

Our team of competition lawyers has extensive experience in dealing with market investigations throughout the UK and across the globe, drawing upon the on-the-ground experience offered by our global antitrust and competition group throughout Europe, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, Australia and Africa.

We offer a multidisciplinary approach to investigations in the most contentious industries, drawing upon our experience from the practice’s key industry sectors: financial institutions; energy; infrastructure, mining and commodities; transport; technology and innovation; and life sciences and healthcare.

Our areas of work include

  • presentation to the competition authorities
  • information requests
  • business planning and strategy.

Our recent work

  • Advising PricewaterhouseCoopers on the UK Competition Commission sector inquiry into audit services.
