Competition and trade

Our Competition & Trade team assists Norwegian and international companies in all areas of competition law and trade law.  

We have advised clients on several international transactions with merger filings in several jurisdictions. We also advise on FDI screening, an area of increasing significance in international transactions.  

Our lawyers advise clients across the full spectrum of competition law matters, including national and multi-jurisdictional merger control advice, cooperation and JVs, information exchange, dominance issues, leniency and investigations, competition litigation, competition compliance, and state aid.  

We represent clients in dealings with the Norwegian Competition Authority, the EFTA Surveillance Authority and the Commission as well as in litigation before Norwegian courts.  

Within international trade law our expertise includes sanctions and export control, FDI screening and international treaties, including EEA law.  

Excellent understanding of the law and a practical approach to it.
