An article by Monckton Chambers’ Michael Armitage appears in the latest edition of the Competition Law Journal (Volume 13, Issue 3, 2014). The article focuses on the interconnection between competition law and property rights, a hot topic since the exclusion of land agreements from the Chapter I Prohibition in the Competition Act 1998 was withdrawn. The article considers the decision of the Central London County Court in Martin Retail Group Limited v Crawley Borough Council, the first judgment on record which considers the new regime for land agreements, as well as discussing some issues of general significance in this area.
Michael has been a tenant since 2012 and has built a practice which spans the full spectrum of competition law. He has advised and appeared in court in land agreements cases on a number of occasions.
Ben Rayment also of Monckton Chambers has written as case note Martin Retail Group Limited v Crawley Borough Council on the same judgment.
