Long experience of applying competition law means our advice is practical and designed to mitigate risk.
Our team understands all aspects of competition law and related regulation. This expertise and experience enables us to help our clients avoid activities that might put their business at risk, especially when such advice is taken at an early stage.

Our work covers international merger control, behavioural anti-trust work, competition investigations, both at EU and national level, commercial agreements (including set up of distribution networks, agency arrangements, vertical pricing issues and horizontal co-operation), State Aid, EU and competition law litigation (both regulatory litigation and damages actions) and compliance programmes and training.
We represent clients before national authorities and the EU Commission in competition and regulatory investigations, as well as in litigation before national and EU courts.
