The competition practice is integrated within the EU Regulatory Department of the Brussels office and as such has developed in the past years a very tight cooperation, which allows the team to provide truly multidisciplinary legal advice. The practice focuses on all aspects of EU and national (in particular, German) competition law, including behavioural antitrust and antitrust litigation, merger control, cartels and State aid.

The team also has significant experience in advising clients on competition compliance matters and policies. It regularly represents clients on competition matters before the European courts in Luxembourg and before civil courts in Germany, as well as before the European Commission
