Dispute Resolution - Competition Law


Andrij is a Partner in the Dispute Resolution department. He specialises in all aspects of UK & EU competition law and leads the Competition team.

Andrij helps businesses that find themselves under investigation by the competition regulators: attending dawn raids; advising on defence strategies; assisting with responses to information requests; applying for leniency (where necessary); and making appropriate submissions. He also has experience of the use of covert intelligence sources by the regulators.

Andrij's work extends to helping businesses with their compliance strategies: reviewing/drafting suitable policies; undertaking audits of business units; providing advice to key executives on their duties; and testing the effectiveness of procedures for dealing with unannounced inspections by conducting "mock" dawn raids. With his extensive experience of dawn raids, he is well placed to advise businesses on what to expect when the inspectors arrive.

Andrij has been involved in a number of successful appeals to the CAT.  He has experience of complex litigation involving competition law claims, acting for both claimants and defendants.  Since joining the Firm, Andrij has been involved in a number of competition damages claims.

Andrij also regularly advises both buyers and sellers on merger control. He has significant experience of applying for merger clearances in the UK, the EU and in other jurisdictions (including the US and Russia). He has also dealt with a number of Phase II merger inquiries, involving problematic mergers and is often asked to advise on the enforceability of potentially difficult contractual provisions and to propose alternative solutions where necessary.

Andrij has advised extensively on pricing practices (including rebates and benchmarking schemes) and has dealt with numerous allegations of predatory pricing. He has also advised on strategies for dealing with parallel imports.

He works across all sectors and has particular experience of the FMCG, food, building materials, basic chemicals, pharma, retail, technology and transport sectors

    The way we use the internet haschanged. It is no longer merely a digital reference library. As the internet has grown and the amount of information available has expanded, people have developed a new way of accessing this information in a way that is relevant to them. The ‘new’ internet, or ‘Web 2.0’, is a network of relationships where users interact and share knowledge with each other. Virtual friends become the custodians of knowledge, recommending products and services through their blogs and on other social media sites. By seeing what your like-minded friends find interesting, you are better able to decide what information you wish to ‘consume’.
