Edouard Sarrazin's practice focuses on both French and European competition law as well as distribution law and  commercial law advice.

Edouard possesses a wealth of experience, with particular knowledge of contentious competition matters, most notably in the context of cartels.

His experience in this area encompasses related practical issues such as optimizing the use of economists and lobbyists, as well as those raised by the frequently multi-jurisdictional nature of such cases (class actions, the use of blocking statutes, and the criminal responsibility of directors and employees).

His practice also comprises advising on unilateral practices and anti-competitive agreements.

Equally, he has significant experience advising industrial and private equity clients on merger control matters in a broad range of sectors, in particular transport. His expertise encompasses all aspects of procedure (due diligence, assessment of merger notification obligations, contractual analysis and competition assessment), the preparation and submission of notifications under French and EU law, the coordination of local lawyers when multi-jurisdictional notifications are required, and representing third-parties wishing to contest the approval of a transaction.
