Abuse of Dominance

Competition regulators around the world are demonstrating a renewed focus on enforcement against abusive practices by dominant companies.

Abuse of dominance practices once again tops the enforcement agendas of antitrust authorities around the world. This is evidenced by the string of recent heavy fines imposed on companies for abusive behaviour as well as by the number of investigations currently being conducted.

Our team has extensive experience assisting clients with complex dominance related issues and takes an active role in the policy debate through our work for clients and in our other professional activities.

Our recent experience includes advising clients in relation to the Microsoft, Intel and Google investigations, the three major EU dominance investigations of the past 10 years. We are regularly active representing clients in relation to abuse of dominance appeals before the EU and national courts.
