We help guide our US clients through the complex EU legal and regulatory environment in which regulators get both more interventionist and collaborative. Penalties are becoming more severe and small markets can have a wider impact than initially be foreseen; sanctions can be criminal and fines can be personal.
We advise on the whole range of UK, French, German, Belgian, Italian and EU competition law issues and devise innovative and successful legal solutions to the problems that our diverse client base presents. We work on matters including mergers, joint ventures, state aid, licensing and distribution, litigation, UK and EU regulatory investigations, third party challenges to restrictive practices, parallel importation problems and public procurement. We also have one of the EU's leading international trade practices.
Our open working practices mean we form strong relationships with you and your in-house legal team, so we become trusted advisers and can provide the innovative solutions you need.
In addition to our Silicon Valley capability, our teams in London, Brussels, Paris, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Munich and Milan currently support clients operating across various sectors, including technology, telecoms, life sciences, energy, transportation and the public sector.
