Clients expect their lawyers to understand the law. What they really need are advisers who bring a clear understanding of their business and who can apply their legal expertise to the commercial context in which they operate. On this measure, you won’t find a better firm than RPC; the leading client satisfaction report for the UK legal sector recently placed us above all other law firms for quality of commercial advice.
Our competition law team offers a wealth of experience advising clients on both transactional and behavioural (day-to-day) aspects of competition and antitrust law, representing clients before regulators in the EU and the UK. We are focused not only on giving advice reactively (eg, in defence of complaints or investigations brought by third parties or regulators) but also proactively, ensuring our clients are best placed to use competition law to protect their commercial interests.
Our competition litigation team combines the breadth and depth of our leading commercial disputes practice, described by clients as ‘formidable’, with our award-winning competition practice. Our service offers the very best in litigious know-how and competition expertise, enabling our clients to use competition law as an effective commercial tool. The practice has three strands: we have experience in the emerging area of private damages actions for competition law infringements; we represent clients in relation to commercial antitrust disputes; and we represent clients challenging the decisions of competition and regulatory authorities.
For international work, we draw on the support of our fellow members of TerraLex, one of the world’s largest independent legal networks, with over 150 law firms in 100 jurisdictions across the globe.
