What can Nicola do for you?

Nicola is a specialist competition lawyer with over 20 years’ experience. Nicola advises on all aspects of competition law, including merger control, investigations by competition authorities, and advising clients on their commercial strategies and trading practices to ensure they are compliant. She also helps clients devise and deliver effective competition law compliance training.

Supporting your ambitions

Competition law can be complex and the consequences of getting it wrong are severe. It can be challenging to apply the law alongside legitimate commercial objectives, particularly in rapidly changing markets. Nicola works collaboratively with clients to understand their key drivers and concerns.  She applies her technical expertise and deep sector knowledge to deliver advice that is practical, clear and straightforward. Whether it is steering a major transaction to clearance, or day to day dealings with distribution networks, Nicola believes in forming long-term working relationships with clients based on trust and shared understanding. 

What do others say?

Nicola is noted for “exceptional commercial acumen to complement her in-depth legal skill set” and for “providing an excellent service where her understanding of our business and the wider commercial market is invaluable”.  She is also described as being “well versed in pricing practices” in the Legal 500.

What else should you know?

Nicola spent a year on secondment to a busy in house legal team and gained a real understanding of the pressures facing General Counsel on a daily basis, which she uses to support clients in juggling competing demands!
