Utilities and sector regulation

Utility companies and regulators frequently seek out our London utilities regulation team for its extensive experience of advising on international regulatory and licensing regimes, where regulatory frameworks meet antitrust and competition legislation. You can depend on our experience of applications and major new facility approval proceedings and be reassured by our confident handling of major investigations and appeals over licence obligations and price controls.

As a corner stone of our energy practice and an integral part of the global antitrust and competition team, our practice spans Europe, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, Australia, Africa and the Middle East, giving you an unrivalled international perspective. Members of our regulatory team have worked inside regulatory organisations, giving us a better understanding of the approach and priorities of competition officials, policymakers and enforcers.

Our areas of work include

  • abuse of monopoly power
  • affiliate transactions
  • anti-competitive agreements
  • infrastructure
  • regulatory compliance
  • securing regulatory clearance for M&A transactions.
