Entrance to our Brussels office
“Slaughter and May is applauded for its hugely responsive and well-connected practice in this sector. It particularly impresses with its work in merger control and contentious matters, with the London-Brussels axis important in the firm network”

Chambers Global, 2010


We advise on all aspects of European competition law.

In particular, we handle notifications to the European Commission under the EU Merger Regulation and represent clients facing investigations and complaints under Articles 101 and 102 TFEU, as well as equivalent national laws. We also advise on the rules on State aid, as well as monitoring other EU developments and maintaining regular contact with Commission officials.

Situated at the heart of the European quarter, our Brussels office is co-located with five of our European 'Best Friend' firms with whom we work closely. Our relationships with specialist competition practices across Europe and globally mean that we are exceptionally well-placed to deal with cross-border cases and issues raised by the increased co-operation between competition authorities.

Our Brussels team comprises 13 specialist competition lawyers and works as an integral part of our Competition practice.
