Overview

Horten's competition team has many years' experience in competition issues in Denmark and the EU. We know the subtlety of Danish competition law and how the Danish authorities construe the EU competition rules. We have close contact with the relevant authorities, in particular the Danish Competition and Consumer Authority, and a strong international network. We are members of the Antitrust Alliance consisting of selected law firms in 15 EU member states. This means that we quickly understand the specific local competition rules, assessing them in relation to the subtlety of Danish competition legislation and thus providing foreign companies with a good frame of reference for understanding the Danish rules.  Our specialists within competition law have in-depth knowledge of how the competition rules are applied and handled in practice within many sectors, e.g. supply, construction and transport, and our expertise is often supplemented by our core competencies within merger and acquisitions, contracts, state subsidies, procurement law, distribution agreements and intellectual property rights.

Horten's EU law expertise is therefore an integrated part of all legal advice and sparring. We have wide international experience and advise Danish and foreign companies on issues regulated by EU law or affecting other forms of international legal affairs.  Our expertise embraces all questions and problems in relation to fundamental principles of EU law.
