Norton Rose Fulbright LLP
Square de Meeûs 5-6
Brussels is the antitrust and regulatory heart of Europe. Our Brussels practice reflects this and is a key component of our global antitrust and competition group, providing a one-stop legal service for merger filings and clearances; national and cross-border investigations into anti-competitive practices, including cartel activity; and civil litigation, including class and group actions.
We work with companies and government organisations from around the world and our multinational team enables us to coordinate advice across all EU countries including Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Poland and the UK, as well as the European Commission itself. Our working languages are English, Dutch, French, German, Italian and Spanish. We offer our clients a strategic understanding of the underlying policies which shape regulators’ approaches and of the sensitivities involved in dealing with antitrust and competition authorities
Our experience is not limited to competition and antitrust laws in the narrow sense; we advise on wider EU, WTO and trade law issues. In Europe, the privatisation and liberalisation of state monopolies and public utilities has led to the creation of special regimes and codes amplifying and modifying general competition laws in a number of industries. We regularly provide advice on industry specific regulations not only to companies but also to governments and governmental bodies.
