Howard CartlidgeSenior Director, Cartels at Competition and Markets Authority (CMA)
I joined the Competition and Markets Authority in 2018 as Senior Director, Cartels, 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 both in 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.
