Competition Disqualification – Article by Christopher Buckley

Re Property Group (2010) Ltd was the first competition disqualification case to go to trial following an application by the Competition and Markets Authority pursuant to section 9A of the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986.

The disqualification case followed the acceptance by two companies of which the defendant was a director that they had participated with five other estate agents in an agreement and/or concerted practice to fix minimum levels of commission fees for the provision of residential estate agency
services.

Christopher Buckley, who acted for the defendant in the case, has written an article on the court’s approach to competition disqualification, which was first published in the Journal of European Competition Law & Practice.
