The Competition Pro Bono Scheme provides an independent source of expert advice to individuals and businesses who believe that their rights under competition law have been infringed or who are concerned that they may be infringing. Advice is provided by a panel of solicitors and barristers who are experts in competition law.
Pro Bono legal work generally means advice or representation provided by lawyers to individuals, businesses and other community groups who cannot afford to pay for that advice or representation and where public funding is not available. An inability to pay, however, is not a determinative feature of this particular Scheme.
This pro bono work is provided voluntarily by the lawyer or his/her firm, so you do not need to pay for it.
Please contact us if you need advice concerning the possible impact of the European Union Competition Rules and/or national Competition Law on your business activities in the United Kingdom or other parts of the European Economic Area.
