The continuing liberalisation of regulated industries over a range of sectors in Ireland and across Europe presents opportunities and challenges for business, often involving complex legal issues of regulatory, competition and administrative law. We act for both corporate clients and semi-State entities in providing regulatory advice.
We advise market leaders on compliance and engagement with sector-specific regulators in the context of licensing, regulatory compliance, and enforcement. We have also advised clients on appeals and challenges to regulatory decisions made by Irish regulators, including by way of judicial review. Our advice spans:-
- Regulatory notifications
- Market investigations and reviews
- Market liberalisation
- Review of regulated markets
- Pricing matters
- Market access
- Regulatory matters affecting commercial transactions and M&A.
