Competition law has steadily increased in importance in parallel with more significant fines being imposed by regulators, and greater contentious activity arising from abuses of dominance and restrictive agreements. It also frequently plays a fundamental role in the success of corporate transactions.
Our Competition, EU and Trade practice covers every aspect of competition law. And we are used to handling complex competition law matters that require deep technical knowledge. But more than that, you will benefit from a team with an outstanding record in cartel investigations and competition litigation before national courts. This includes representing clients on appeals before the European Courts. We can also advise you on multi-jurisdictional merger control and have submitted numerous successful notifications to European and national authorities.
You will have access to a team of specialists with a breadth of experience across all sectors. In particular, the firm’s experience in technology-rich industries gives us specific expertise on the interface between competition rules and the protection of IP rights. We have real strength if you are in the technology, media and life science, as well as the retail sectors. In addition, we have in-depth know-how in multi-channel trade and other aspects of vertical business relationships.
