EU and Competition Law

The competition rules are the traffic rules of the business sector. When the common rules are observed by everybody, there is room for innovation, growth, and development. But if unfair or unreasonable terms are forced upon your business, or progress is impeded, we can assist you.

But if required, we are also ready to go all the way, and we defend our clients against unreasonable attacks by competitors as well as against the authorities’ misinterpretations of the EU rules.

We offer analysis, sparring, and advice in relation to EU law, including::
