Jessica Gardner, Senior Associate, Competition, Regulatory and Trade
I am a senior associate in the Regulatory Group, specialising in competition law. I advise on all aspects of the UK and EU competition rules, including cartel investigations, dominance issues, restrictive agreements, distribution / route to market strategies, mergers and acquisitions and competition litigation. I have managed a number of investigations and compliance audits and have counselled a client through a dawn raid. I regularly deliver training on key risk issues, described by the Head of Legal at one client as "the best training ever received on any topic".
My advice is strategic and risk-based, enabling clients to manage risk issues in a way which complements their commercial strategy and saves them money.
I have particular expertise in regulated sectors, including food and beverage / retail, life sciences and transportation (air, rail, maritime).
I was amongst the top 4% performers on the PgDiploma in EU Competition Law in 2012/13, graduating with Distinction.
