London: Dispute resolution

Competition litigation

Within: Competition litigation

The team at Norton Rose Fulbright advises claimants and defendants on the full range of competition law proceedings before UK and EU courts and in regulatory appeals before the Competition and Markets Authority. Providing 'strong leadership', practice head Peter Scott is noted for his 'conscientiousness' and experience in high profile competition disputes. Scott represented The Law Society in its defence of a fast-track claim before the Competition Appeal Tribunal, brought by Socrates Training, alleging that the client's accreditation scheme breached competition law. In another stand out case, alongside Mark Simpson, he is currently representing Vodafone, as an indirect purchaser, in its High Court claims against multiple suppliers of smart chips; a case listed for trial in 2019. 'Highly competent' senior associate James Flett is another key figure on the team.

London: Risk advisory

Brexit

Within: Brexit

Norton Rose Fulbright fields a core multidisciplinary Brexit team, which is led by Emma Giddings, that monitors developments in the negotiations and assesses the commercial implications for clients. Its advice on Brexit covers all the industries in which the firm has a particular focus, such as financial institutions, insurance, energy, transport and life sciences. The firm launched a dedicated trade practice in London in January 2017 as a response to the EU referendum vote; practice head Mark Simpson has trade treaty law experience, which includes free trade agreement negotiations under the WTO framework. In addition, counsel Milagros Miranda Rojas has more than 15 years of experience of advising and representing governments in trade policy and international trade law issues. Beyond core legal advice to its clients, the firm is extremely active on the thought leadership front. Jonathan Herbst has provided evidence to the House of Lords EU financial affairs sub-committee on the impact of Brexit on financial services. He has also been asked by the same sub-committee to give evidence on how financial regulation and supervision can evolve post-Brexit to ensure financial stability, and to ensure equivalence/some other form of close relationship between the UK and EU regulatory regimes to preserve market access. Harry Theochari is advising the UK government on the impact of Brexit on the UK's port and shipping interests. The energy team has been involved in various Brexit-related speaking engagements, conferences and client training events.
