What we do

Aldwych Partners is a competition consultancy that advises on CMA investigations into mergers and anti-competitive behaviour.

We are former regulators that bring together, in a single firm, the regulatory and economic analysis skills needed for competition advice.

Our clients include UK and US corporates, private equity and other investors, and law firms that wish to supplement their in-house expertise.

We act as lead competition adviser on transactions or can supplement in-house or other external support.
