Overview

Competition law, public procurement, State aid and EU/EEA law are highly demanding areas of law, which have a significant impact on businesses and public sector. We have a team of 14 lawyers who work daily with these areas, and has the experience, competence and capacity to handle any type of case.

The competition rules are in a constant state of development, and are applied strictly by both national and supra-national competition authorities. The companies we work with are experiencing that authorities have an ever increasing focus on how competition works and how it is affected by merger activity and as a result of cooperation between players on their relevant markets. This is the reason that many rely on us to ensure that their activities are carried out within the framework of the competition law rules. 

Our competition lawyers handle cases before the Norwegian and international authorities and courts. In addition to their experience as lawyers, our team can draw on their experience from leading positions in the Norwegian competition authority, the EFTA Surveillance Authority, the UK Competition and Markets Authority, the European Commission, and from both the Norwegian courts and the EFTA Court.
