Competition Law

We help our clients realise their commercial ambitions whilst complying with competition regulations and laws in the jurisdictions in which we operate.

We have an in-depth understanding of the intricacies and nuances of competition laws in Guernsey and Jersey, where we work with the Guernsey Competition Regulatory Authority (GCRA) and the Jersey Competition and Regulatory Authority (JCRA) to ensure that transactions are conducted as quickly and efficiently as possible, with minimal commercial risk.

We advise clients on general competition law issues as well as in connection with mergers and acquisitions - from advice around whether competition approvals are required through to making competition applications.

When it comes to contentious issues our lawyers represent clients involved in all manner of competition disputes, including representation in the local courts, appeals against regulators' decisions, judicial review proceedings, claims for follow-on damages actions and commercial disputes.

Our extensive knowledge and experience in this field makes Carey Olsen one of the leading offshore competition law advisers. We have a strong track record of dealing with the local competition authorities and we maintain excellent relationships with policymakers and the regulators in our jurisdictions.
