Euclid Law was created by experienced competition lawyers with a common desire to build a new competition law firm that is agile, collaborative, highly commercial in its thinking, innovative in its approach to delivering results and free from the constraints of larger law firms.
Our core expertise covers all aspects of competition law, including cartels and anti-competitive agreements, merger control, abuse of dominance, state aid, competition litigation, market investigations as well as audit and compliance. With offices in both London and Brussels, in-depth experience and a network of contacts in key jurisdictions around the world built up over many years of practice, we have the ability to advise clients across Europe and worldwide. We represent clients before EU and UK competition authorities and courts.
Main Area of Expertise
Exclusively focused on competition law.
- Strategic focus from experienced and recognised senior lawyers
- No large teams of associates mean we are focused on achieving your commercial objectives rather than maximising utilisation
- Our focus gives us greater room to be innovative and strategic in our advice
We offer flexibility as we frequently team up with other law firms or counsel where appropriate, either on the basis of referrals or as co-counsel. We share resources, and we work collaboratively with our clients, other law firms and outsource providers. We embrace rather than fear the latest technological solutions, including the use of AI techniques in internal audits, official investigations and compliance programmes
