EU, EEA and competition law

SANDS’ EU, EEA and competition law lawyers provide advice and assistance in competition law, State aid and general EU/EEA law. Several of SANDS’ competition law lawyers have backgrounds from Norwegian and European competition authorities, and in recent years they have worked on several of Norway’s largest and most complex cases. We want to be clear in our advice in a field where the firms’ goals and strategies, competition economics and competition law together create the basis for the best commercial solutions. In cases where there are potentially large assets and historic opportunities at stake, SANDS provides its clients the security of a modern and up-to-date law practice, with unconditional attentiveness from skilful partners.
