Following a rigorous open competition, the CMA has today appointed its panel of standing counsel who will advise and represent the CMA on its cases.
The panel consists of Marie Demetriou QC of Brick Court Chambers, Rob Williams of Monckton Chambers, and David Bailey of Brick Court Chambers.
Welcoming their appointment, the CMA General Counsel, Sarah Cardell, commented, “I am delighted that we have been able to appoint counsel of such high calibre. The CMA needs a strong team of advocates and external legal advisers, who are enthusiastic about and committed to its work - but also able to give it detached and objective advice. I look forward to working closely with all 3 members of the panel.”
Marie Demetriou QC took Silk in 2012. She has extensive advocacy experience before the English and European Courts across her specialist areas of EU law, competition law and public law (including human rights) and was formerly a referendaire at the European Court of Justice.
David Bailey’s practice is built on his expertise in competition law. He has worked on cases before first-instance and appellate courts in the UK and EU. David is a Visiting Professor of Law at King’s College London, and the co-author (with Richard Whish) of Competition Law, 8th edition 2015.
