Overview

As competition law increasingly influences critical aspects of corporate and commercial strategy, first-class competition advice is vital for doing business globally.

Linklaters’ Lisbon office is the only resident law firm in Lisbon with a major office in Brussels. This keeps our Competition/Antitrust experts in constant touch with a heavyweight, pan-European team of experts in this evolving area of law.

Our team can help you navigate the complex framework of Portuguese and European competition law. We advise our clients on merger control issues, compliance assessment and training, state aid issues and accompanying investigations by the Competition Authority or the European Commission, including appeals to National or European Courts.

The main strength of our team remains in the ability to offer specialised work together with regulatory, litigation and IP, at a very high level. This has allowed us to serve national and international clients, in extremely complex cases, calling for the widest range of expertise, including participating in the negotiation of distribution and other commercial agreements, cartel investigations and multi-jurisdictional merger operations.

With increasing focus on competition issues within Portugal, our team advises on merger and acquisition deals, national and cross-border cartel investigations and was the first law firm in Portugal advising on leniency applications to the Portuguese Competition Authority, with an extensive cartel work experience.
