Brick Court Chambers has an unparalleled reputation in EU and competition law.  This reflects the fact that, for decades, our barristers have been at the forefront of developments in these areas of the law. They have appeared in many of the landmark EU and competition law cases and they have an experience and expertise that is simply second-to-none. Of course, our barristers appear regularly in the UK courts, whether in the High Court, in the Competition Appeal Tribunal, in the Court of Appeal or the Supreme Court. But we also have a highly developed practice before the European Courts (where our barristers have had over 1000 appearances) and the European Commission.  Above all, we pride ourselves on our flexibility – our barristers work for a wide range of clients, in a counsel team or as the sole barrister, whether litigating or giving advice. Through the service we give, we hope and intend to remain the ‘go to’ set for all EU and competition law matters.  Our combined expertise in EU, public/constitutional law and commercial law equips us particularly well to negotiate the legal issues thrown up by the Brexit referendum.
