Antitrust infringements, cartels in particular, cause enormous damage to businesses: significant reputational damage, heavy financial penalties and carry the risk of subsequent damages actions.

We have extensive experience in advising on all types of restrictive agreements falling within Article 101 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU and equivalent national legislation.

We offer legal assessment of our clients’ commercial agreements: distribution, agency, franchise, discounts or pricing policies and advise of any changes they may need to make in order to comply with competition law.

As a multijurisdictional network, we are able to provide our clients with efficient and integrated advice on cross-border cartels:

  • We analyze relationships with competitors to avoid situations where the client could be considered part of a cartel;
  • We advise on leniency applications from a multi-jurisdiction point of view;
  • We defend our clients’ interests throughout an investigation;
  • We represent clients in any resulting antitrust litigation.
