Legal Director Nicola Sharp explains to Lawyer Monthly how the Covid-19 pandemic has exposed the Competition and Markets Authority’s weaknesses.



With the coronavirus pandemic sparking tens of thousands of complaints about business practices to the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), Rahman Ravelli’s Nicola Sharp wrote a piece for Lawyer Monthly about the Authority’s shortcomings.

In her article, Nicola outlined why the CMA’s determined promises to take enforcement action against those found to have done wrong may not prove as reassuring as they may at first seem.

She points to the fact that the CMA chairman has announced he is quitting due to the “inherent limits’’ he faces in trying to introduce reforms. Nicola also highlights the CMA’s request for tough temporary powers to tackle pandemic-related wrongdoing being turned down by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy – while its counterparts in other countries are being given such powers.
