Nicola Boyle was instrumental in developing the firm’s Competition practice in London having joined Hausfeld shortly after its launch in 2009.

Nicola’s expertise lies in acting on large-scale follow-on cartel damages claims for affected businesses from across Europe, often multi-jurisdictional in nature, including most recently claims against Mastercard and VISA in London and damages actions in a number of other European jurisdictions. She has also advised individual and multiple claimants on rights of redress in Consumer and Financial Services claims. A keen proponent of Alternative Disputes Resolution, she has successfully resolved a number of complex multi-party disputes outside of the courts.

Nicola previously taught an undergraduate course in European law at the University of Birmingham. She also participated in the Competition Appeal Tribunal working group on the implementation of the UK Consumer Rights Act and the European Damages Directive.

Previously at McGrigors (now Pinsent Masons).
