The centre of gravity in antitrust law has shifted with the globalisation of regulation and enforcement.

In this environment, many of the world's leading companies are turning to Allen & Overy as their preferred competition counsel on their global antitrust policies, litigation and regulatory strategies. Our clients include many of the world’s leading corporations and financial institutions.

We have over 100 specialists working collaboratively across four global regions – Asia, Australia, Europe and North America – one of the largest Competition teams among the major international law firms. As such we combine the efficiency of a global footprint with local depth of expertise.

A single team with an international focus and creative thinking, we provide an expansive range of services and regularly represent our clients on merger control, cartel and abuse of dominance/monopolisation, antitrust disputes including judicial review and private damages, compliance and counselling, sector regulation and market investigations, public procurement and competitive tendering, and state aid.
