Cadwalader partner Vincent Brophy and special counsel Tom Bainbridge have written a chapter in Global Competition Review's annual Antitrust Review, entitled "European Union: Financial Services". The article provides a summary of EU antitrust developments in the financial services sector, including commentary on the recent proliferation of EU antitrust investigations, the interplay with financial regulatory enforcement and the development of private litigation. Against that background, the article addresses certain practical aspects to be considered when dealing with antitrust cases in this sector.
