Hayley Toms

Hayley works across a broad range of sectors, assisting clients with various strategic, regulatory and anti-trust issues.

Hayley has gained significant experience working on large high profile merger cases, engaging with both the Competition Markets Authority (CMA) and the European Commission (EC).  She particularly enjoys using novel data science techniques to assess local market overlaps, and applied these in her work on the successful clearance of Tesco’s merger with Booker and also in assessing the proposed merger between Sainsbury’s and Asda.

In her time at Frontier, Hayley has also worked on complex policy issues. For example, she utilised her critical thinking skills to assess how the Value for Money of Higher Education (HE) in the UK could be measured. More recently Hayley has widened her experience in regulated industries, providing support to multiple Water companies in the build up to the Final Determinations of the next price control review (PR19).

She completed both of her economics degrees in London, after finding the lure of good coffee too hard to leave. She holds a Bsc from the London School of Economics, and a Msc (Distinction) from Birkbeck College, University of London.
