EU and Competition Law Partner Robert Bell was featured Nov. 20 in The Times’ Brief and Commercial Dispute Resolution (CDR) commenting on the Brexit withdrawal agreement. Bell told The Times’ Briefthat “the agreement the prime minister has come back with from Brussels condemns the UK to a zombie-like status within the European Union for the transitional period and beyond.” However, he pointed out in CDR that the draft treaty does provide some welcome points for competition lawyers, stating that the agreement offers “continuity, with close cooperation between the EU Commission and the CMA in both antitrust enforcement and state aid, including following CJEU jurisprudence during the transitional period and beyond.”
