Sir Christopher set up what is now the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) and held the post of President from 1999 to 2007. The CAT hears appeals from regulatory decisions by the OFT and other regulators under the Competition Act 1998 and Articles 81 and 82 of the EC Treaty, appeals under the Communications Act 2003, reviews in relation to merger and market investigations under the Enterprise Act 2002, and certain damages actions. As President, he was responsible for case management, interlocutory and interim applications, chairing the main hearings and preparing and delivering the judgments. Prior to joining the CAT, from 1992 to 1999 Sir Christopher was one of 15 judges of the Court of First Instance (CFI). He was President of a 5-judge chamber from 1996 to 1999. Cases where he presided as judge covered a wide range of EU law areas including: anti-dumping; competition; contractual disputes; Euratom; freedom of information; free movement of goods; international law; pharmaceutical licensing; trademarks; and state aid. Before becoming a judge at the CFI, Sir Christopher was one of the leading QCs at the competition and EU law Bar in London.
