Competition & EU Law

Malta’s accession to the European Union has brought about significant legal changes and has been the greatest motivator for change in legislation in the past fifteen years. As the EU moves towards greater integration, from rights of citizens to the Single Market, regulation has become ever more sophisticated and in particular creates new challenges and opportunities for businesses across the 28 Member States.

The Competition and EU Law team covers all aspects of Maltese and EU Competition Law. We regularly handle high profile transactions involving major market players, both local and foreign. The same team integrates with other departments to achieve comprehensive advice by drawing on the experience gained from other fields of law such as litigation, Cartel cases, abuse of dominance and restrictive practices cases, as well as other competition and antitrust investigation, are all covered by our lawyers’ experience. We also represent clients in litigation and advise on public law, State aid and public procurement matters.

Practices within the sphere of Competition and EU Law include anti-competitive behaviour, colluding practices, merger control, public procurement and state aid.
