Economic law – Competition – Distribution

Our expertise

Our multidisciplinary team is profoundly influenced by EU law (reflected in its dual presence in Paris and Brussels) and by the intertwining of law and the economy. We provide our clients both with advice and support in litigation, on all subjects liable to influence the establishment and management of business relations between professionals or with consumers, thanks to our recognised operational and sector-driven approach.

Our skills primarily cover Antitrust & Competition law, Merger control, Distribution law and Consumer law, but also touch on other areas such as Product regulations, Commercial urban planning, marketing, advertising and certain aspects of Employment law.

We support our French and foreign Clients in their national and international development, the preparation of their business strategy and the deployment of their distribution networks. We also assist them with merger control, analysis and risk prevention with regard to Antitrust & Competition law. We defend their interests in litigation, both before the national courts and before all national and EU competition authorities as well as in arbitration and mediation proceedings.

Alban Curral runs the Department.
