Competition & Regulatory

Competition law affects your company from its top-level strategic objectives to its day-to-day commercial decisions. To succeed in a competitive world, your company will innovate, merge with other businesses or create strategic alliances. You may need to share information and work together both with competitors and non-competitors alike. We can assist you in achieving this, within the boundaries of competition law compliance.

Integrated approach

Do I need to notify this transaction for merger control clearance? What are the chances that the competition authority will clear our transaction? Am I allowed to cooperate with my competitor for R&D or to jointly distribute our products? What resale price policy may I impose on my distributors? How can I implement competition law compliance within my company? Which is the better fit for my company: selective or exclusive distribution? Officers of the Belgian Competition Authority or European Commission present themselves  to search my company’s offices for evidence of cartel infringements, what do I do?

Every company will face these and many other competition law questions, whether at the national or EU level. Very often the way in which these issues are handled will prove to be deal makers or deal breakers in your commercial transactions. In addition, antitrust or abuse of dominance investigations can seriously affect your company’s public image and lead to very high fines.
