Competition & EU

Italy

Competition and regulatory authorities and local governments are increasing the number and the scale of their investigations. In order to meet these growing challenges, clients need a strong legal counsel with experience, international reach and a thorough knowledge of major national and international competition law regulations. Based in Milan and in Rome our team offers this assistance. The team operates in all business areas with particular reference to: proceedings before both EU and Italian authorities (such as those related to cartels and abuse of dominant position), assistance before civil and administrative courts, domestic multi-national merger filings, state aids and for general consulting.

The CMS Competition Group is one of the largest competition teams in Europe and at the same time one of the most widespread. We offer a one-stop-shop solution to clients for all their competition law needs across Europe and beyond.
Giving the fact that competition and regulatory authorities now possess far-reaching powers, we also implement effective risk mitigation systems.
Our Italian team of competition lawyers has developed a deep expertise in consumer protection. In this field we provide problem solving solutions if requested to appear before the competent authorities, and, in addition, the team also offers the necessary assistance to avoid issues and regularly advise in the drafting of the T&C for on-line sales to consumers.
Our sector approach helps us understand your business and get to grips with the issues which may arise from your day to day work.
