Lucy Venn, Associate, Competition, Regulatory and Trade, Fieldfisher

I am a competition and regulatory lawyer in the Regulatory Group at Fieldfisher.

I have experience in advising clients on all aspects of EU and UK competition law, including merger control, behavioural advice, competition litigation, market studies and investigations, multi-jurisdictional filing analysis and advising on commercial contracts.

I have acted for both claimants and defendants in follow-on damages actions and assisted a major airline before the European Commission and European Courts and in its defence of contribution claims in the UK High Court. I also have experience of pre-action negotiations and successful settlement discussions in a follow-on damages claim. I was part of the team that advised BritNed in the landmark follow-on damages case against ABB.

I have been an advisor for a client at a dawn raid (by the CMA) and have delivered mock dawn raid training to a large multi-national client.

I also have procurement experience and have acted for a client in its defence against a procurement claim, which resulted in a very favourable settlement for my client.
