Competition & EU Lawyers

Competition authorities have increasingly far-reaching powers to investigate mergers, markets, sectors, cartels, market conduct and commercial arrangements. You face an ever increasing risk of regulatory intervention, significant penalties, damages litigation and criminal liability.

Our dedicated competition and regulatory experts in CEE, including former regulators, can advise you on the entire range of contentious and non-contentious competition law issues. We regularly advise clients on competition matters across multiple jurisdictions in CEE, working closely together, to deliver consistent and joined-up advice. We have a successful track record in representing clients before national authorities and courts, as well as the European Commission and courts.

Extremely thorough [and] deeply experienced in the field of competition.
