Emma Radcliffe Senior solicitor
Emma is a senior solicitor in the competition/antitrust group.
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 sectoral enquiries (including negotiating undertakings to resolve concerns) across a range of industries. Emma has also advised a number of clients on phase I and phase II merger control investigations by the CMA, including consideration of possible divestments.
Emma has developed a particular expertise and interest in the financial services industry, having acted for clients in this sector on a range of competition law issues. These include advising a bank on multiple high-profile antitrust investigations (including, for example, the alleged manipulation of LIBOR) and a trade association on a European Commission investigation into standardisation in the e-payments sector. She also regularly provides day-to-day competition law compliance advice to clients in the financial services sector, both in relation to historic conduct and future business propositions.
Emma’s 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.
