Competition Law

We work closely with our clients to enable them to realise their commercial ambitions in compliance with the competition laws of Guernsey and Jersey, and, where applicable, the British Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands.

We have an in-depth understanding of the implications of those competition laws and, in Guernsey and Jersey, we work with the Channel Islands Competition and Regulatory Authorities to ensure that each transaction is conducted as quickly and efficiently as possible, with minimal commercial risk.

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

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