Competition and anti-bribery


Competition law carries substantial risks for retailers and their employees, ranging from the threat of significant fines and severe damage to reputation, to potential criminal penalties for individuals, including prison and director disqualification. Instead of focussing on the restrictions, we will identify the issues facing your business and provide you with practical solutions, recognising the risk-profile of your organisation.

  • Strategic advice – on the impact of competition law on trading and distribution issues such as pricing and bonus schemes, selective distribution, internet selling and parallel imports.
  • Expertise – in handling investigations by the UK and EU competition authorities, from initial dawn raid through to the Competition Appeal Tribunal.
  • Tailored compliance programmes – training employees on the risks and forming part of the overall corporate responsibility policies of the business.
