SCLF Event To Offer Insight Into Online Retail Challenges

Posted: 2nd September 2014


Maclay Murray & Spens’ (MMS) Catriona Munro is set to chair the next Scottish Competition Law Forum (SCLF) event, which takes place on 11 September. With online taking a rapidly growing slice of all retail sales, the session will explore some of the different issues facing online and ‘bricks and mortar’ businesses, as well as the approach taken by the Competition and Markets Authority and European Commission to accommodate such structural change.

Catriona Munro, a partner in MMS’ EU & Competition department, said: “Online selling continues to have a transformational effect on retail markets and this event offers an excellent opportunity to explore the competition implications in more depth.”

Speakers include Carolyn Jameson (director, general counsel, Skyscanner); Antonia Horrocks (project director, CMA); Ben Rayment (barrister, Monckton Chambers); and Matthew Johnson (economist, Oxera).

The free event, hosted by MMS’ EU & Competition team, takes place at the firm’s Edinburgh office at Quartermile One, 15 Lauriston Place, Edinburgh EH3 9EP on 11 September. It starts at 5pm and concludes at 7.30pm.
