TAF Christmas Party

Hear the latest development from the organisation responsible for strengthening business competition and preventing and reducing anti-competitive activities. Find out what constitutes anti-competitive behaviour and how you can avoid the pitfalls. And learn what you can do to protect yourself and your organisation.

And then, after all that intellectual stimulation, glide seamlessly into the TAF Christmas Party where you can have a drink and nibbles and meet old friends.

Speaker Biography:
Howard Cartlidge

I joined the Competition and Markets Authority in September 2018 as Senior Director, Cartels and Criminal Enforcement, having previously been a solicitor in private practice for over 25 years.

For almost all my career I specialised in EU and competition law, working in both London and in Brussels. I acted for clients in a wide variety of industries, with particular expertise in the media, technology, retail, and healthcare sectors. I regularly advised on the full range of EU and competition law, including in particular cartel and other competition investigations, merger control proceedings, competition law litigation and issues relating to the supply and distribution of goods in the EU.

At the CMA I have primary responsibility for leading CMA teams investigating cartels, promoting compliance with anti-cartel laws and representing the CMA in relevant public and media events.
