Increasing interim measure use stirs consequences debate

Sarah Long commented to PaRR analytics on the increased use of interim measures, cautioning that despite the CMA’s recognition that the tool should be used more, the legal test remains relatively difficult to meet, and interim measures have never been successfully applied in the UK.  The CMA cites the Online Auction Platform case (which Euclid Law advised on) as an example of a successful interim measures case in its 2018/2018 annual report, although the case was closed after commitments were offered so there was no interim measures decision.  You can read Sarah’s article – co-authored with Simon Chisholm (CRA) and Helen Parker (UK Auctioneers Group) – here.
