Competition authorities regularly investigate mergers and acquisitions and intervene in markets in order to protect competition.

My consultancy work focuses on investigations by the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority, especially in:

 – Helping companies and investors better assess merger control risks

 – Helping interested parties make the best competition case they can

 – Coaching executives in preparation for investigation hearings

I also train competition agencies around the world in investigation skills.

With 20 years of experience advising business and government competition agencies in competition investigations I have been closely involved in hundreds of UK merger cases and many of the largest market investigations, across all sectors.

As a result I am able to provide deep expertise on the investigatory processes involved and on lessons and best practice from past cases. Please click here for more detail.
