Antitrust & Competition law

We provide assistance to identify the best solutions, be it M&A, investigations or court cases

Authorities are using an increasingly wide range of powers to investigate mergers, markets, and anticompetitive behaviour, making the financial and reputational risks to business ever more acute.

We provide legal and strategic assistance to Norwegian and international clients within all aspects of competition law; merger control, compliance, assistance to clients in the crosshairs of the competition authorities and assistance to clients pursuing a complaint at the competition authorities. We also assist in contentious cases in damages actions, both on the plaintiff’s and the defendant’s side.

Our team has assisted in many of the largest competition cases related to Norway, and will coordinate seamlessly also on a European and global level.

We provide both general advice and assistance with proceedings before the Norwegian courts, the Norwegian Competition Authority, the European Commission, the ESA, the EFTA Court and the European Courts in Luxembourg.

Grette’s partner, Odd Stemsrud, is appointed by the Norwegian Competition Authority as a Non-Governmental Advisor to the International Competition Network/ICN. Grette is contributor to ICLG’s well-known on-line guide «merger control».
