Financial Services Antitrust Bulletin

1 September 2022

This edition of the relaunched Clifford Chance Financial Services Antitrust Bulletin provides an overview of developments relating to the application of competition law to the financial services sector during the second quarter of 2022.

This edition of the Clifford Chance Financial Services Antitrust Bulletin charts the following key themes derived from developments over the last quarter in Europe, North America and the Asia Pacific region.
