Alexandra Hackney, Solicitor, Competition, Regulatory and Trade, Fieldfisher

I am a solicitor in the competition, regulatory and trade team and trained here at Fieldfisher.

I have experience in advising on a wide range of competition matters, including distribution arrangements, restrictive agreements, procurement, state aid and cartel investigations. I have a particular interest in the telecoms and broadcasting sectors, most recently advising on matters such as the implementation of the new European Connected Continent regulations, and the competition aspects of licensing models in the television industry. Competition litigation is another focus of mine, and I am heavily involved in the disclosure aspects of the multi-billion pound air cargo cartel litigation in the UK courts.

As an active participant in the firm's CSR programme, I undertake fundraising initiatives (such as running the 2016 London Marathon), and represent pro bono clients in appeals before the Special Educational Needs tribunal.

Sport features heavily in my down-time – I'm a keen runner, skier and horse-rider and captain the firm's netball team, alongside enjoying the occasional trip to the races!
