Slaughter and May ‘quite simply have one of the finest competition litigation teams in the City’. The firm is able to offer a deep bench of specialist practitioners, with a strength in competition litigation that stretches across all seniority levels. In addition to handling standalone claims, the group is regularly instructed to defend large corporates in damages cases following on from the most high profile liability decisions at EU and UK level. Damian Taylor and Holly Ware advise MAN SE on claims in the Competition Appeal Tribunal and the High Court following the European Commission’s truck cartel investigation. ‘Great elder statesman’ Richard Swallow, who leads the group, is currently advising on damages claims arising from the roll-on/roll-off cartel alongside Camilla Sanger. Senior counsel Elizabeth Jordan is a ‘future superstar’.
