Competition and Markets Authority appoints Rob Williams as Standing Counsel

14 Jul 2015

Chambers is delighted to announce that the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has appointed Rob Williams as Standing Counsel. The appointment follows an open competition (the first since the CMA became the primary competition and consumer authority in the UK) and has been made with the approval of the Attorney General.

Rob has been appointed to a panel of three barristers who will work closely with the CMA to provide advice and representation across its case work. The appointment term is three years with an option to extend for a further three.

Rob follows in a long line of distinguished competition lawyers at Monckton Chambers who have performed the role of standing counsel to the UK’s Competition authority including Jon Turner QC, Daniel Beard QC, and before their appointment to the bench, Mrs Justice Rose and Lord Justice Richards.
