Global Competition Review Quotes Riis-Madsen on Denmark CaseApril 26, 2017
In the April 26, 2017, article “Danish Court Imposes Fine for Misleading Merger Filing,” Global Competition Review interviews O’Melveny’s Christian Riis-Madsen on a regional court’s decision to pursue a food wholesaler for filing a misleading deal notification to the country’s competition enforcer.
“I think it is understandable that the authority wishes to protect the integrity of their procedure and ability to rely on information provided during the merger process, [especially if] there was proof that the party deliberately mislead them,” Riis-Madsen said.
Riis-Madsen, managing partner of O’Melveny’s Brussels office, focuses on EU competition and regulatory law, and has significant experience in high-tech industries involving fast evolving markets, intellectual property rights, and complex trade patterns.
