EU, competition and distribution

Within: EU, competition and distribution

The competition and antitrust offering at Altana covers antitrust litigation, merger clearance and distribution matters under the joint leadership of Marie Hindré, Frédéric Manin and Jean-Philippe Thibault. A team including counsel Lucie Giret - who recently arrived from De Gaulle Fleurance & Associés - recently acted for AG2R La Mondiale and Matmut on the competition aspects of their merger, which created one of the largest insurance groups in France. Contentious highlights include Manin's advice to a major automobile company on a standalone private enforcement claim brought by a former service provider seeking compensation for losses incurred due to alleged anticompetitive behaviour by the client. In other highlights, Hindré continues to advise UGI on its acquisition of Totalgaz and the challenge to the FCA's merger clearance decision by a competitor. Benoît Van Bésien and Sylvie Grando (both counsel) are also key names to note.
