EU/EEA, competition and state aid

Insight to capitalise on the opportunities posed by the EEA regulations

We provide legal and strategic assistance to Norwegian and international clients within all aspects of EU/EEA and competition law. As far as competition law is concerned, this includes merger control, compliance, assistance to enterprises in the spotlight of the competition authorities and assistance to enterprises wishing to file a complaint with the competition authorities or to bring legal action against a supplier or competitor they believe to be acting unlawfully. As far as EEA law (the four freedoms) is concerned, we have clients that experience restrictions on their access to their respective markets, which we assist with market access issues. We also assist clients that have been endowed with special or exclusive rights by the public sector, which require robust business models from an EEA law perspective. Within state aid law, our assistance includes assessments of the room for manoeuvre for aid recipients and the public sector under the state aid regulations, as well as complaint or notification cases before the EFTA Surveillance Authority (ESA). 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.
