EU & competition

Twenty Essex appears regularly before courts and tribunals at all levels to argue questions of EU and competition law. These include the Competition Appeal Tribunal and Court of Justice of the European Union, as well as the UK Supreme Court, Court of Appeal and High Court.

Practice areas include:

  • Antitrust
  • Mergers and concentrations
  • Market investigations
  • Public undertakings
  • State aid
  • Private follow-on damages actions
  • Stand-alone actions for damages and injunctions
  • Administrative proceedings before regulators
  • Judicial review of regulatory decisions
  • Applications to the Competition Appeal Tribunal
  • Appeals to the General Court and the Court of Justice of the European Union
  • Sanctions work, including litigation/advice relating to EU sanctions regimes
  • Preliminary rulings from the national court in all areas of EU law

Twenty Essex’s caseload in competition law continues to increase. Members have recently been involved in matters involving follow-on (and standalone) damages claims from the European decision on the trucks cartel. They have also advised litigation funders in Europe and Asia Pacific on potential class actions in this and other areas and advised companies on ongoing competition issues.

Members regularly deliver high-profile papers on the impact of Brexit. They have also spoken on industry panels and to lawyers in-house on Brexit and continue to do so in this rapidly changing area.

Clients include community institutions, member states, private companies, public authorities and private individuals.
