We're in the business of supporting yours.

eu and competition

Competition Law in the UK and Europe is complex, with substantial penalties for anyone infringing them – so it is vital that you have experts in the field who you can turn to. The granting of distribution rights or operating as part of a distribution or dealer network can all potentially fall foul of Competition Law if not set up in the correct way.

We can make sure that your business is protected by offering clear and up-to-date advice in this area including drafting compliant distribution agreements.  We can also assist if you receive correspondence from regulatory authorities or third parties alleging you have breached Competition Law and can provide clear and pragmatic advice to enable you to avoid penalties and civil claims.

To make an appointment to see one of our Corporate Lawyers, Tim Roberts, Troy Warner, Danielle Austin or Gemma Gurney please call on 01908 692769 or contact us.

What our clients say:

“From my first meeting with Danielle through until completion of our job I felt entirely in knowledgeable and capable hands. I was always kept up-to-date with the progress and milestones we needed to take and Danielle was efficient and diligent in following up with all parties to ensure the process moved along smoothly. Danielle was always available to answer and clarify any queries I had. I’d be very happy to recommend Danielle and her team at Geoffrey Leaver and will of course take any future legal problems I may have directly to Danielle for her expertise.”
