Team head and managing partner Brian Hartnett ('a hugely experienced litigator'), Oliver Geiss and Will Sparks represented Chilean airline Latam in a successful appeal of the EC's finding of a global cartel in the air freight sector. Also notable is the firm's excellent credentials in state aid cases, as was illustrated when Hartnett and Geiss successfully represented Frucona Košice in a landmark appeal at the European Court of Justice.
