Frances Murphy will join Bingham McCutchen after representing clients including the London Metal Exchange and AstraZeneca before the European Commission in various competition matters, as well as representing clients in cases with the UK Office of Fair Trading, Competition Commission, Competition Appeals Tribunal and the High Court.
