  • defending companies under investigation by the European Commission, national authorities and the UK's Competition and Markets Authority for alleged infringement of competition law;
  • managing and coordinating merger clearances globally;
  • advising on competition law aspects of commercial agreements, such as distribution agreements, technology transfer, research and development, and specialization agreements, and on competition law aspects of unilateral conduct;
  • designing and implementing compliance training and advising on responding to “dawn raid” investigations by competition authorities in Europe;
  • state aid;
  • sector regulation based on EU directives, particularly in the energy sector; and
  • foreign investment and public security regulatory aspects of mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures.
