Merger clearance

Together with our Corporate and M&A teams, we assist clients in national and international mergers, acquisitions and the setting up of joint ventures. We advise clients on the structuring of these transactions and the resulting notification obligation(s).

We counsel and represent clients in connection with applications for merger clearance before the European Commission, the Belgian Competition Authority and (in cooperation with foreign counsel) other competition authorities.

We also represent clients wishing to oppose the clearance of competitor transactions.
