What is involved?

Led by Andrew Maxwell, our dedicated and expert Competition Team is experienced in guiding clients through every step of a Competition Law investigation. This ranges from responding to the initial Dawn Raid, to crafting leniency applications and preparing responses to information requests and statements of objections. Our team can also support you in resolving disputes involving Competition Law. Our lawyers also act for clients involved in cartel and competition damages actions, including follow-on and stand-alone Competition Litigation.

We advise and train a myriad of major corporates across a wide variety of industry sectors on Competition Compliance and Dawn Raid policies.

Freeths can also conduct Mock Dawn Raids and Competition Audits for clients.

Why choose Freeths?

  • As “business people first, lawyers second”, we see the situation from your point of view
  • You can trust our solicitors to be commercially-minded, practical and honest about your options
  • Our team work with a huge range of businesses, so we can provide you with sector-specific advice
  • We are highly attuned to the CMA’s policies and procedures, helping you to avoid risks

Freeths act for a number of clients on Dawn Raids and our Competition Team have advised on several cartel and antitrust investigations by Competition regulators.

Andrew Maxwell was previously seconded to the Competition and Markets Authority as Legal Director and is therefore highly attuned to the CMA’s enforcement practices and procedures in Competition Law investigations from both angles. Call our highly experienced Competition team to find out more.
