Competition and regulated markets

Everyone understands the importance of strong, effective competition law for functioning markets, and therefore economic growth. So it’s important that your commercial advisors can help you not just to ensure that your own behaviour complies with competition regulations, but to monitor your competitors’ behaviour. Since our national legislation is based on European legislation this means that an extensive knowledge of European and international competition rules is vital.

Brinkhof’s specialist competition lawyers advise and litigate on the full range of European and Dutch competition law and sector-specific market regulation. They focus on competition inquiries, merger control, staid aid and private enforcement of infringements of competition law. They have extensive experience in assisting companies in both proceedings under administrative law before the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets, the European Commission, the Dutch courts and the Court of Justice of the European Union and civil stand-alone and follow-on proceedings before the Dutch courts, including collective and class actions. In addition Brinkhof is a market leader in the field of telecoms regulation and has extensive expertise in other regulated markets, including healthcare, pharmaceuticals, media end energy.
