The arrival of Duncan Gillespie to our Corporate Team

My Business Counsel is delighted to announce the arrival of Duncan Gillespie in to our Corporate Team


Duncan joins us from DLA Piper after spending 10 years at the City Firm as Partner. He brings with him over twenty years of experience in European and UK Competition and State Law.


A focus of Duncan’s work has been State Aid law where he advises both public sector bodies wishing to grant State aid and those under investigation by the EU authorities for allegedly granting or receiving it.


Duncan has obtained State aid clearance from the EU Commission in Brussels for a number of high profile projects and regularly advises clients on how projects can be structured to avoid aid arising in the first place.


Duncan comments regularly on competition law matters in the media and advised the House of Lords Information Technology Committee on the State Aid implications of the publicly funded roll out of Broadband Infrastructure in the UK. He has also contributed to a book to be published by Hart Publishing in September 2016 on the newly enacted Hong Kong Competition Ordinance.
