As a global top 15 law practice, Eversheds Sutherland provides legal advice and solutions to a global client base ranging from small and medium-sized businesses to the largest multinationals. Clients describe us as creative and well-versed in cutting-edge legal work, and our work is acknowledged as understanding how and where we can be most effective and add the greatest value. Eversheds Sutherland’s global competition, EU and trade team is recognised as one of the world’s leading competition and antitrust groups. We were named the Legal Business Competition Team of the Year 2018 and were awarded the GCR Behavioural Matter of the Year Europe in 2017. Our international team of over 70 competition lawyers located across Europe, the United States and Asia offers strategic advice and representation on national and global matters relating to merger control, competition and antitrust practices, behavioural matters, competition litigation, compliance, trade and export control. The practice handles the most complex behavioural and investigatory work (civil and criminal), as well as any ensuing litigation. A number of our team members are former regulators. We understand the way regulators work and maintain a strong network of contacts with key decision makers. Our team of merger control lawyers have extensive experience of achieving clearances for transactions which raise complex and difficult competition. Despite merger control investigations becoming significantly more onerous in recent years, we have maintained an enviable success rate in achieving clearances, including at Phase I and Phase II, for deals that raise difficult competition issues.
