Competition and European Law

Our Competition and European law practice reflects the diversity and increasing importance of competition and European law. We handle contentious and non-contentious competition and European law matters. In order to ensure the best possible service, we often work closely with other teams (predominantly the Commercial, Corporate & Finance, Tax and Labour & Employment departments) within our law firm or with our trusted law firms abroad.
