The Competition and Markets Authority has today announced that Tristan Jones is to be appointed as one of its Standing Counsel.
The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is the United Kingdom’s primary competition and consumer authority. As Standing Counsel, Tristan will bring expertise in public and competition law and he will work with the CMA as it takes on its new and broader responsibilities in merger control, antitrust enforcement, and the management of the internal market in light of Brexit.
Tristan is widely recognised as a leading junior barrister across his core practice areas of public, regulatory, EU, telecoms and competition law. Tristan has appeared in some of the main challenges to regulatory competition decisions, both in antitrust matters and in mergers (including for the CMA in the 2020 challenge to its Sabre/Farelogix decision).
The appointment follows an open competition and is for an initial period of three years.
