With the recent campaign by the European Commission to facilitate antitrust damage claims, we have seen a significant rise in the volume of follow-on civil litigation cases. We help to identify the risks and guide our clients to a swift conclusion.
To ensure the highest level of service, specialists from our litigation and competition law practices collaborate to form an integrated Antitrust Litigation Group that specialises in defending clients against antitrust damage claims. With proven experience in cooperating with economic experts, their combined experience makes them one of the strongest groups in the Benelux.
We are involved in many national disputes, some of which have led to preliminary procedures before the European courts in Luxemburg. Furthermore, competition law infringements often have a cross-border element resulting in civil litigation in multiple jurisdictions occurring more or less simultaneously. Our Antitrust Litigation Group has successfully represented clients in disputes connected with almost all Western and Northern European jurisdictions.
Through strong working relationships with top-tier law firms in other jurisdictions around the world, we can, at very short notice, advise on appropriate strategies to deal with both national and international dimensions of follow-on litigation.
