Peter Broadhurst is a partner based in Crowell & Moring’s London office and is a member of the Antitrust & Competition Group. His practice focuses on advising companies on U.K. and EU competition law covering a range of sectors, including TMT, financial services, energy and infrastructure, industrial, and consumer goods. He advises on matters in front of the European Commission, the U.K. Competition and Markets Authority and the U.K. sectoral regulators, as well as managing processes in front of competition regulators in other jurisdictions.

He is an experienced counsellor, assisting clients with all aspects of competition and antitrust law and has particular experience in the issues arising from mergers, acquisitions, structural joint ventures, and cooperation agreements, obtaining merger approval decisions where necessary. He also advises clients on cartel investigations, abuse of dominance (acting both for the allegedly dominant and for those claiming abuse), and distribution arrangements; and, more generally, counsels clients on how to manage competition law and antitrust risk and operate their businesses successfully and profitably whilst remaining in compliance with the rules and avoiding cartel liability.

Peter has advised on numerous U.K. market studies and market investigation references, as well as EU sector enquiries.

He also navigates clients through the growing number of foreign direct investment rules in Europe and the U.K.

Peter has been recognized by The Legal 500 for his EU and Competition work in the U.K., with clients noting that he "has significant experience in the TMT sector." Additionally, Who’s Who Legal (2020 and 2021) lists him as a Future Leader for Competition.
