Competition & EU Lawyers

In today's economy, globalisation and digitalisation continue to change business - creating new markets, breaking markets, breaking down barriers to entry, blurring the boundaries between industries and increasing regulation.

The potential impact of digital expansion on markets is increasingly a global issue. At the same time, climate and social change open up new possibilities for trade agreements based on sustainability and other non-economic public interests. Vertical restraints are a growing area of focus as market dynamics create distribution relationships.

Abuses of dominant position are an important issue across Europe, attracting a growing number of investigations, decisions and fines. Dawn Raids have become frequent in many jurisdictions and companies are increasingly being advised to include these events in their risk management planning.

Whatever your opportunities or challenges may be, our team is specially designed to understand your business needs and advises companies on how to comply with competition law.

We can help you shape your strategy, manage risks and make the most of business opportunities in these areas:

  • Company mergers
  • Training
  • Competition Proceedings
  • Distribution Relations
  • Horizontal and vertical Cooperation Agreements
  • Private Enforcement
  • Abuse of dominant position
  • Unfair Trade

We have an in-depth knowledge of how competition law applies in practice across different markets and with cross-disciplinary teams, we work to provide advice close to our clients’ needs.
