CMA, European Commission and Investigations
  1. CMA, European Commission and Investigations

    It is crucial that regulatory investigations are handled sensitively from the outset and that the correct strategy is adopted.

    We have experience of many of the most significant competition investigations under the current regime from both an investigator's and defendant's perspective and we can therefore adopt the right approach to achieve the best result for you and your business.
