Digital regulation

Many countries are developing new digital regulation regimes that apply to the “digital gatekeepers” such as Google, Apple, Meta and Amazon. These new laws will govern how competition in the tech sector operate for the coming decades and businesses should pay close attention to how they are being drafted, implemented, enforced and updated.

Who we work with  

We represent a wide variety of broadcasters, news publishers, app developers, gaming companies, ad tech companies, search engines, e-commerce sellers, brands, manufacturers and other companies in the development of the new regimes. 

Our experience

  • Our firm is a key player in the design of the new regimes, which we achieve through substantive submissions to regulators and governments.  
  • We are also deeply involved in researching and creating academic articles and speeches discussing how digital regulation should be designed to achieve their desired policy outcomes.  
  • Our firm authors the Platform Law Blog, which is read by thousands of policy makers and competition officials involved in digital regulation.  
  • Damien Geradin has interviewed both the CEO of the UK’s CMA and the key MEP architect of the EU’s regime for the blog.  
  • We act as external counsel to the Coalition for App Fairness for UK and EU matters. We co-founded the Responsible Online Commerce Coalition, which represents the interests of businesses who rely on Amazon and other e-commerce platforms to reach their customers. 
  • Our lawyers have given evidence to the European Commission, the Furman commission, and the UK Parliament’s digital select committee and public bill committee.  
  • We were the only private practice lawyers invited to give evidence to the UK parliamentary committees during the passage of the Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill. 
  • We have appeared on Bloomberg TV and the BBC Today Programme, and we are often quoted in the media such as the Financial Times, the Wall Street Journal, Politico, Tech Crunch, Bloomberg News and the Daily Mail.
