London competition law firm Crefovi delivers an integrated ‟Antitrust & competition” practice platform that serves clients’ needs both locally and at a pan-European level, addressing all dimensions of antitrust risk.
Meeting the challenges of today’s global antitrust & competition climate
More than 100 countries have antitrust & competition laws, and enforcement regimes routinely collaborate on major merger and business conduct investigations. More than 70 of these jurisdictions require pre-merger notification and approval for transactions affecting commerce within their borders. The United States, the European Union, its member-states and many other countries have increased dramatically the number and scope of investigations into cartel conduct and allegations of price-fixing. And private damage antitrust litigation — a fixture in the United States — is rapidly increasing in Europe and other jurisdictions.
This highly-regulated environment creates a dangerous operating climate for businesses and requires sophisticated antitrust counsel, with global capabilities, knowledge of local practices, and comprehensive expertise across the major antitrust disciplines of mergers, cartel and conduct investigations, and litigation.
The ‟Antitrust & competition” practice of Crefovi meets these challenges every day with lawyers that match market-leading local expertise, with broad experience, in providing seamless, integrated service and counsel across borders. Teaming with their local counsels around the world, the lawyers of Crefovi live and work in the world’s major antitrust jurisdictions and have first-hand experience working in dozens of other countries. Many are multilingual, speaking at least two languages fluently.
