A new sheriff in town – Getting ready for a shake-up in consumer protection law

17 April 2024

The Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill will soon become law in 2024. With this, the UK’s competition regulator, the Competition and Markets and Authority, will wield powerful new tools to enforce consumer protection law.

The emergence of a sophisticated, well-resourced regulator in this area will be a game changer in terms of legal risk to those marketing products to consumers.

In this webinar, Scott Rodger and Natasha Durkin, Associates in Shepherd and Wedderburn’s top-ranked competition team, will give an overview of the key changes in law and what this might mean for businesses operating in the food and drink sector.
