Competition Litigation

Our EU/UK competition litigation team acts on behalf of major undertakings in all aspects of competition litigation in the national higher and appeal courts and the UK's Competition Appeal Tribunal. We act on both the claimants' or the defendants' side, in standalone or follow-on claims, for abuse of dominance or anticompetitive collusion.

The UK team is led by Richard Pike and Stephen Critchley in London and Stephen May in Birmingham. It has acted for Achilles in its abuse of dominance claim against Network Rail, for which it was awarded Competition Team of the Year 2022 at the Legal Business Awards. Its recent work includes three separate claims against the truck manufacturers' cartel and representing Euronet in its claim against MasterCard and Visa in relation to European ATM fees.

The German team is led by Sascha Dethof and Christian Bahr, and its recent experience includes follow-on litigation in  the trucks, steel abrasives and car glass cartels. The Spanish team is led by Borja Martínez.

We have a large core team whose members qualified either as competition lawyers or litigators and have a dedicated focus on competition litigation.

The core team will always lead a matter, but we can flex our capacity by drawing on the firm's deep pool of pure competition lawyers and pure commercial litigators.

The Fieldfisher team provided invaluable and unflinching support throughout three years of extremely challenging litigation … [they] devised and executed a strategy that allowed us to protect our rights against an extremely large and well-resourced opponent determined to defend our claims … Fieldfisher deployed creativity, resilience and strategic thinking in equal measure to protect [our] future in the course of hard-fought litigation.
