Emma Radcliffe Partner

Emma advises on a broad range of antitrust/competition law issues.

These include:

  • managing dawn raids and inspections;
  • leading and co-ordinating antitrust investigations (whether conducted internally and/or by regulators);
  • obtaining UK and EU merger control clearances and advising on multi-jurisdictional filings; and
  • providing day-to-day competition law compliance advice to clients, both in relation to historic conduct and future business propositions.

She has extensive experience of high-profile investigations by the CMA and the European Commission, particularly in relation to alleged cartels (including the leniency and settlement regime) and contentious matters arising from those investigations (including defending follow-on and standalone damages claims before the High Court as well as collective/class actions in the Competition Appeal Tribunal).

Emma has developed a particular expertise and interest in the financial services industry, having acted for clients in this sector in relation to a wide range of investigations and regulators worldwide. These include multiple long-running antitrust investigations in relation to alleged benchmark manipulation.

The majority of Emma’s matters are cross-border and her perspective is informed by time spent outside UK private practice, including secondments to Brussels, Sydney and to the CMA’s predecessor, the OFT, as a case handler.
