Skadden’s European Union (EU) and international competition practice focuses on four principal areas under EU and other non-U.S. antitrust laws: merger control, cartels, abuses of dominant positions and other antitrust issues (e.g., vertical licensing/distribution arrangements and state aid issues). We offer multinational clients highly integrated, proactive and cost-effective legal strategies that are customised to deal with the increasingly sophisticated and closely coordinated enforcement actions adopted by European and other non-U.S. antitrust authorities in both transactional and non-transactional matters. EU and international competition matters are primarily handled by the Brussels office.
