We also act for companies under investigation in abuse of dominant position proceedings, involving issues like discriminatory pricing, discriminatory discounts and rebates and refusal to supply customers, to give access to essential facilities, or to license intellectual property. We are active in advising both regarding Art. 102 TFEU, as well as regarding the corresponding domestic competition rules.
The members of our team also have experience in private competition litigation cases, where antitrust damages are sought.
In the framework of our M&A practice we determine whether business transactions must be notified to the European Commission or national competition authorities and we handle EU (together with Brussels-based law firms) and national merger filings.
