Research interests

The primary focus of Grant's research is EU and UK competition law. Areas of particular interest are: the private enforcement of EU and UK competition law in national courts; jurisdiction in relation to competition law enforcement; the analysis of specific types of conduct prohibited under Articles 101 and 102 TFEU; and the enforcement of EU rules on state aid. In terms of approaching the study of competition law, Grant has a general interest in the relationship between competition law and economics as well as the study of law in a comparative context.
