Competition

Competition and antitrust laws around the world are rapidly evolving and investigations by competition authorities and competition law litigation are increasing. Businesses must be aware of the evolutions in competition law rules and comply with them in their daily activities. ALTIUS’ team of specialists has built up an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of Belgian and European competition law.

Our competition team also represents clients before national and European competition authorities and courts. In major antitrust litigation cases, the competition team closely co-operates with ALTIUS’ litigation team.

We seek - by listening to you - to understand your business and the market in which you operate. This approach enables us to provide advice in a manner that is both practical and relevant to your business. We help you make the appropriate, strategic choices in often challenging circumstances.
