LMR has a leading competition law practice in Finland. LMR’s competition cases represent the full spectrum of both EU and Finnish competition law: merger control, cartel investigations, horizontal and vertical agreements, abuses of dominance, compliance programs and training, litigation, public procurement and state aid.
LMR has particularly strong experience in defending clients in cartel cases before both the European and Finnish competition authorities and courts, including some of the biggest cases ever. In addition, LMR regularly advises both foreign and domestic clients on challenging self-assessments of various horizontal and vertical agreements, as well as complex merger control and dominance-related procedures and issues, whether European or national.
LMR’s competition lawyers have also carefully followed the fast developing area of private enforcement of competition rules (especially claims for damages) and have strong experience in litigation and arbitration. We have represented both claimants and respondents, as well as been arbitrators.
Complying with competition law may be challenging, the risks of infringement are great, and the consequences of an infringement are ever increasing. Accordingly, LMR is constantly developing and running comprehensive competition law compliance programmes and training sessions for numerous corporate clients. In addition to defending clients against allegations of infringement, we help clients to comply with, understand and benefit from European and Finnish competition laws.
LMR has long experience advising clients on public procurement procedures. We have assisted numerous clients, both tendering entities and procurement units, in different stages of the public procurement process.
LMR is regularly ranked a leading law firm in the area of competition law in Finland. All leading international ranking organizations and directories (Chambers and Partners, Global Competition Review, The Legal 500, PLC Which Lawyer, etc.) highly recommend LMR’s competition law practice.
