The Competition and Markets Authority has recently opened an expanded office in Edinburgh. This article reviews the history of the enforcement of competition law (whether in antitrust, markets or merger control) by the CMA and its predecessors and in the Competition Appeal Tribunal and the Scottish courts. With Brexit, calls for increased devolution in competition law and a possible second referendum on Scottish independence, there will be further changes in the enforcement of competition law in Scotland, with the future likely to see more, rather than less, competition law enforcement there than has been the case to date.
