Antitrust/Competition / EU Competition
Mergers & Acquisitions

Our experts have been retained to advise in some of the largest and most complex merger investigations carried out by national authorities and the European Commission. We have been involved in almost every cross-border European energy merger during the past 15 years. We have also advised in connection with mergers in the communications and financial sectors.

Our deep understanding of regulation makes us well placed to advise in connection with complex merger cases in regulated industries. Our role in these cases is to analyze the potential competitive effects and efficiency improvements of the merger and the impact on market concentration and entry conditions, as well as any proposed remedies, in the context of the European Horizontal and Non-Horizontal Merger Guidelines.

We have provided economic analyses in merger cases before the European Commission, the Court of First Instance, and national competition authorities in Austria, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
