Competition Law

FB Attorneys has extensive experience dealing with anti-trust law. It often represents clients in hearings before the Fair Competition Commission (FCC), the pre-eminent anti-trust authority. FB Attorneys has successfully negotiated before the FCC permitting its clients clearance to engage in mergers with other corporations.

The team also has experience successfully appealing rulings issued by the FCC to the Fair Competition Tribunal and Court of Appeal. The team has vast experience in negotiating with the FCC and has recently concluded a multi-billion shilling settlement for a client. In competition law it is not just the law that drives the agenda but simple economics.

The FB team has lawyers with strong background in economics and econometrics, giving them an advantage over others.
