Adam Rose, Partner in the Intellectual Property Group, has been quoted in The Telegraph in relation to Google Chrome's redesign which may raise competition concerns, risking another fine from European regulators.

The new version, which syncs users' search history to their personal Gmail account, would collect even more user data and could prompt Gmail, Google Maps and YouTube as default services, leading to concerns for both privacy and anti-competitive behaviour.   

Adam says, "It's a bit surprising given they have a dominant position, because they must be aware that they might be at risk of a fine. You might take a slightly sceptical view that they will earn millions or billions in the meantime, and if they are fined less than their additional earnings, it's worth the risk".
