Dominic advises on all aspects of antitrust law but has extensive experience advising on complex merger clearances before both the European Commission and UK merger control authorities, with a particular focus on the communications, media and technology sectors. In the UK, Dominic has advised on a number of high profile transactions and has considerable experience before the Competition Appeal Tribunal ("CAT"). In recent years, this has included advising News Corporation on its proposed acquisition of the outstanding shares in BSkyB that it did not already own, involving parallel reviews by the OFT, Ofcom and the Secretary of State’s independent legal advisors. Dominic also advised BSkyB on its acquisition of a 17.9% stake in ITV (including before both the CAT and the Court of Appeal) and HBOS on its acquisition by Lloyds (including before the CAT). In addition Dominic has advised on numerous merger clearances before the OFT including ASSA ABLOY on its separate acquisitions of Agta Record, Paddock Holdings and Securistyle, and Cable & Wireless PLC on its acquisition of Thus Group. At the European level, Dominic has advised on several major cross border transactions including the recent Phase II clearance of Hutchison 3G Austria’s acquisition of Orange Austria and the 2010 Phase II clearance of Oracle’s acquisition of Sun Microsystems. Dominic also advised WPP on its acquisition of Taylor Nelson Sofres Plc.
