EU and Competition

LS Attorneys are very experienced with matters concerning the European Union and Competition.

Especially in the context of competition issues, the EU has become one of the main decision-making centres in the world.

A merger or cartel decision of the European Commission affects industries and sectors on a global scale. As a result, businesses, organizations and individuals must play an active role in the decision making process in Brussels, for example, to protect their interests internationally. Stakeholders must stay vigilant of legal and economic trends that exist or may arise all over the world in that process.

The international challenges are multi-fold, such as a merger between international companies being blocked by the European Commission or national antitrust authorities.  Or perhaps the challenge can come in the form of anticipating legislation that impacts policymaking and trickles down into the international business sector.  These are the kind of challenges that Legal Skills firms can address in cooperation with the client by applying legislative and political skills to implement their policy agendas in all decision making bodies.

We assist our clients in competition issues on a European level and in the European Member States to achieve their desired business objectives.
