Competition Law

In competition, we know that detailing the law isn't enough. You need to be able to see things from a commercial perspective so you can protect the competitiveness of your or your clients' businesses.

LexisPSL gives you a clear view of the law and the commercial impacts. Our short, focused practice notes come with checklists, flowcharts and quick reference guides that help you know what to do in response to fast moving situations (especially if you're in unfamiliar territory). And daily news feeds and case trackers make it easy to stay on top of the latest developments that affect you.

For deeper research, you can follow the direct links to regulator guidance, legislation and case law, and the authorities: Butterworths and also Whish Competition Law. We also have international and industry content written by insider experts supported by Getting the Deal Through®. And our currency converter and merger notification tool frees up more of your time.

Business-minded advice so your client stays compliant and competitive, direct links for deeper research, and time saving tools - from experts in law and business.
