Competition, EU and trade

Eversheds Sutherland’s competition, EU and trade practices offer strategic advice and representation on national and global matters relating to competition and antitrust. We also advise and provide representation on all types of international trade and investment issues, including issues of EU law, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), export controls, import relief, sanctions, anti-money-laundering and anti-corruption compliance. With lawyers throughout Asia, Europe and the US, we deliver a seamless, one-stop legal service.

We regularly handle the most complex behavioral and investigatory work (civil and criminal), as well as any ensuing litigation. Our areas of experience include merger control and joint ventures, cartel investigations, distribution arrangements, state aid and EU funding issues, procurement challenges, export control and sanctions, anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigations, international trade law proceedings and negotiations, national regulation of foreign investment (including CFIUS reviews) and wider EU law and regulatory compliance issues. Combining extensive legal experience with in-depth local and international knowledge, our lawyers are on hand to help you.

Commercially focused and innovative legal advice

Our competition, EU and trade group has intimate knowledge of the companies we represent and the broad range of industries in which they operate. We leverage our industry knowledge and experience to provide incisive, tailored and commercially focused advice for your business. If called upon to defend you, our lawyers are also experienced in devising effective strategies and arguments to secure the best possible outcome.

Our focused project management approach ensures that we fully understand your goals from the outset. We endeavor to provide sophisticated, proactive advice that will assist you in achieving your goals, without undue legal risk.

We have also developed market-leading tools to provide cost-effective competition law training to any size of workforce, wherever they are based, via our online Competition Toolkit, our ethics@work tool and other tailored compliance packages.
