OUR EXPERTISE

EU & Competition

Expertise in Irish/EU competition laws is critical for expanding companies or those looking to protect commercial interests from competitors. With our expertise, clients can navigate the merger control and assessment processes before Irish and EU competition authorities. We can also advise on state aid, dawn raids and abuse of dominance and assist clients who find themselves threatened or harmed by a market competitor.

Always with a focus on compliance, we help clients meet their commercial objectives without having to compromise their competitive edge.

Led by partner Tom Carney, our tightly integrated multi-disciplinary team of expert counsel, economists and advisors will help you deal with the complex landscape of Irish and /EU competition laws.
