Lena’s work experience covers all aspects of competition law, including State aid, abuse of dominant position, cartels, and merger filings. She is an expert in State aid, having worked in that area for more than 25 years both in the public and private sectors. In addition, she has extensive sectoral regulatory experience in the energy/environmental sectors (including renewables, gas and electricity production and transmission).
