Within: Competition

For many 'the best competition litigation set' Brick Court Chambers has 'a large selection of high-quality competition law specialists who enable any instructing solicitor to have their pick of silks and juniors alike'. The set is well-represented in all manner of major cases, such as the trucks cartel case, in which James Flynn QC, Kelyn Bacon QC, and Daniel Jowell QC represent the Road Haulage Association, Iveco, and MAN respectively. Many members are involved in the high-profile Merricks v MasterCard case, with Mark Hoskins QC representing MasterCard in defence of a claim on behalf of a class comprising the majority of the UK population. Marie Demetriou QC, in addition to involvement in the Merricks case for the claimants, also represented the Competition and Markets Authority, defeating an appeal by Ping, which was sanctioned for banning online sales of its golf clubs, the first time the issue was considered by a British court – she was against Robert O’Donoghue QC , also from chambers. The set now also includes Jon Lawrence, who was called to the Bar in 2018 after spending over two decades as a partner at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP.
