Daniel Vowden


Daniel is an expert in EU and UK competition law matters.



Daniel advises international clients on the full spectrum of EU and UK competition law matters.  
Daniel has acted on complex and challenging UK merger control cases and many high-profile, cross-border deals requiring regulatory approval in Brussels and in other jurisdictions. Daniel's transactional expertise is balanced with in-depth experience of behavioural and advisory matters, including EU and UK cartel investigations, with a particular focus on the financial services, mining, TMT and retail sectors.  
Daniel's experience includes advising:
  • Weir Group plc on the £275 million disposal of its Flow Control business division 
  • a leading investment bank on the European Commission' s investigation into alleged foreign exchange rate manipulation
  • Hammerson plc on merger control issues relating to its bid for Intu Properties and the unsolicited approach made by Kleppiere
  • Électricité de France (EdF) on complex competition and regulatory aspects of its landmark development of the UK's first new nuclear power plant for a generation, Hinckley Point C
  • AbbVie on the competition law aspects of its aborted US$54 billion offer for FTSE 100 pharmaceutical company Shire plc, (which, at the time, would have been the largest ever inward investment into the UK).



Daniel was promoted to partner on 1 May 2019.
