There are several distinctions between U.S. antitrust laws and competition regulations in the United Kingdom. At the law firm of Shepherd, Finkelman, Miller & Shah, LLP (SFMS), our lawyers are equally comfortable litigating competition claims on both sides of the Atlantic.
Competition law, known as antitrust law in the United States and competition law or regulation in the United Kingdom, is increasingly a global concern for businesses. Working with trusted co-counsel, our lawyers handle claims under British law, including the Competition Act 1998 and the Enterprise Act 2002. We also litigate collective or class actions under the Consumer Rights Act of 2015.
Our lawyers represent clients before the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), the Office of Fair Trading (OFT), English courts and UK Court of Appeal regarding claims of competition violations such as:
- Agreements that restrict free trading and competition
- Predatory pricing
- Price gouging
- Refusal to deal
- Tying arrangements
- Challenges to mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures
With offices in California, Connecticut, Florida, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, as well as an impressive network of international affiliates, we are able to handle antitrust, competition regulation and international conspiracy claims in virtually every major market in the world.
