Lexology: Competition Compliance 2023 - European Union

May 2, 2023

O’Melveny partner Riccardo Celli, of counsel Christian Peeters, counsel Philippe Noguès, and associate Rebecca Evans authored the European Union section of Lexology’s Competition Compliance 2023. The publication is part of the prestigious ‘Getting The Deal Through’ series, the leading reference guide for jurisdiction-specific antitrust legislation and enforcement practice.

Offering in-depth insight into the mechanics of EU competition law as it is interpreted and applied by the European Commission and the EU Courts, the section provides comprehensive guidance for in-house counsel and private practitioners on one of the most relevant antitrust regimes in the world.

The authors identify key compliance risks and mitigation strategies related to horizontal and vertical arrangements, market dominance, merger control, and joint venture agreements. Leveraging decades of EU competition experience, they also detail how to navigate European Commission investigations, with a specific focus on immunity/leniency applications and settlement procedures, in light of past precedents and emerging enforcement trends.
