The Handbook of Competition Economics 2017

Norway

The demand for more in-depth economic analyses by competition law practitioners continues to increase as the Norwegian Competition Authority’s (NCA) taste for more advanced economics grows. Hence, the NCA asks for more and more information from parties, in particular in merger investigations, which sometimes puts an unbalanced administrative burden on companies, says a number of competition lawyers in Oslo. At the same time, the lawyers also say the NCA has a very fast and efficient way of handling small uncomplicated mergers.
