Antitrust, Competition and Trade

Practice Area Overview

Competition laws and regulations on a European and global level are increasingly influencing business strategies.  Our team has built up knowledge and experience in various aspects of competition law including competition investigations and litigation, mergers and acquisitions, and foreign direct investment.

We take a comprehensive and holistic approach to competition law matters taking into account commercial, administrative, human rights and constitutional law together with competition law. We have been involved in some of the most prominent antitrust cases in Malta and constantly advise clients on both contentious and non-contentious matters.
Our team also handles trade matters in a variety of business sectors, including unfair trading practices, consumer protection regulations, import and export controls and economic sanctions.
