Administrative Proceedings & Judicial Review

Monckton Chambers is acknowledged as a pre-eminent set in all areas of competition law.

We offer specialists at every level of seniority, to suit every type of competition law case.  Our members are recognised leaders in their field, who consistently appear in the leading competition cases in both the European and domestic courts.

Members offer advice and representation at all stages of regulators’ investigations and in subsequent appeals and reviews of decisions, including:

Administrative Proceedings

  • Merger inquiries by the Office of Fair Trading, Competition Commission, European Commission and other merger authorities (including merger submissions, oral hearings and negotiation of remedies).  Further information can be found on our Merger Control page
