Competition

Enyo Law acts in all types of competition litigation both before the English Courts and the Competition Appeal Tribunal, as well as in private and LCIA arbitrations.

We act for clients in pricing disputes, abuse of dominance and cartel cases and have experience acting at every stage of proceedings, including:

  • Pre-action conduct
  • Applications for interim measures
  • Actions for damages
  • Appeals against decisions of national competition and regulatory authorities; and
  • Judicial review.

Our team also advises clients in the context of unfair competition claims, regulatory investigations, and super-complaints. We have represented clients in dawn raids at national and EU levels. We have also made submissions on behalf of clients to consultations in the context of economic regulation.

Enyo Law has acted for clients in industries as diverse as the aviation, manufacturing, telecommunication, and life science industries.

Huawei was found to have infringed a number of Unwired Planet’s patents. Unwired Planet was found not to have breached Article 102 TFEU and was therefore entitled to an injunction against Huawei, who had refused to take the fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory ('FRAND') licence set by the Court.
