EU, competition and regulatory
Through our network of international offices, our EU, Competition and Regulatory International Practice Group is able to provide clients with a comprehensive and integrated service.
Competition policy is central to an increasingly global market place. Its impact goes to the very heart of the way industries are structured and how they operate. Related developments, notably the ever closer working relations between the major competition law enforcement agencies around the world and the regulatory environment created by the liberalisation of a number of major industry sectors across Europe, are reinforcing its importance.
Through our network of international offices, our EU, Competition and Regulatory International Practice Group is able to provide clients with a comprehensive and integrated service. As leading advisers in this complex field, our expertise spans the whole spectrum of EU and competition issues, notably:
- Investigations and complaints, including complex multi-jurisdictional cartel work
- Compliance, including advice on compliance programmes
- Merger control
- Advising on commercial agreements
- Public procurement
- State aid
We also have broad regulatory experience, advising government and regulatory bodies, private sector investors and operators across a range of regulated sectors (notably transport, water, energy and TMT).
Many of the most challenging competition law issues lie at the interface with intellectual property law, and we have been actively involved in a number of leading cases in this area.
We represent clients before the Court of Justice of the European Union, the European Commission, national courts and enforcement agencies.
