The Firm is often involved with Italian and international clients in complete structured antitrust audit and compliance programs.
Through its presence in Brussels, Chiomenti offers assistance in EU Law matters, both in handling mergers on a European level and with particular reference to state aids, the free circulation of goods, persons, services, and capital as well as the sectors involved in liberalization processes (energy, transport, communication).
