EU and Competition

Our EU and competition law practice covers all aspects of EU and national competition law, including cartels, prohibited agreements and practices, abuse of a dominant market position, merger control, public procurement and state aid.

We regularly take charge of submitting notifications to the national and EU competition authorities and coordinate multi-jurisdictional merger control notifications in large international transactions. We also assist clients in identifying and assessing possible competition law concerns in agreements, trade practices and business policies and offer assistance with competition audits, compliance programmes and training.

Our lawyers have extensive experience in advising on general EU law in a wide range of industries and regulated markets, including in particular EU regulations and directives in the fields of capital markets, banking, financial services, insurance, consumer goods as well as the energy and telecommunications industries.
