Adding City and international experience to the strong commercial team at Harrison Clark Rickerbys, new arrival Georgina Eclair-Heath specialises in commercial and competition law.
Georgina, a senior associate, joins the firm from the Brussels office of Bird & Bird LLP, where she advised leading multinationals on exchange of information, cartels, abuse of dominance, state aid, and merger control. She has also represented clients in litigation before the European courts in Luxembourg.
As well as experience in the IT, internet, and communications sectors, Georgina has a particular interest in the food and farming industry, having recently completed a graduate degree in agriculture.
Georgina said: “I was attracted to Harrison Clark Rickerbys by the team’s considerable strength in both the commercial and IT/IP arenas. I am looking forward to working with such a strong group of specialists.”
Robert Capper, head of the commercial team in Worcester, said: “Georgina’s experience will be invaluable as UK companies look to develop and expand further afield during and after Brexit – I am delighted that she has been able to join us.”
