Shoosmiths LLP’s nationwide competition practice is led by Simon Barnes in Reading and is frequently involved in matters before the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA). Barnes and senior associate Angela Gregson (who joined the firm’s London office in 2015 from Mishcon de Reya LLP) represented Fenland Laundries before the CMA on the merger control aspects of its ultimately aborted acquisition of Fishers Cleanroom. Other clients include Coca-Cola Enterprises and Euronics.

Stevens & Bolton LLP’s ‘extremely knowledgeable’ team provides ‘clear, tailored advice’ and ‘a comparable level of service to that which is offered by City law firms’. Practice head Gustaf Duhs is ‘a real expert in his field’, and is able to bring his experience at the Office of Fair Trading to bear on competition matters. Dufs and senior associate Maliha Mahmood advised on the UK merger control aspects of Nishimoto’s acquisition of Harro Foods.

Legal Developments in South East for EU and competition

  • US rules regarding offshore accounts

    The Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act 2010, enacted on 18 March 2010, imposes a new US withholding tax and reporting regime, known as the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). The FATCA regime applies generally to payments made after 31 December 2012, except on obligations (to be defined in future guidance) outstanding on 18 March 2012. Substantial effort is required by foreign entities to bring their worldwide operations and policies into compliance with the FATCA rules as of the effective date.
