The international team of Goltsblat BLP’s Competition & Antitrust Practice includes lawyers with extensive expertise in the practical application of competition law, operating from our offices in MoscowLondon and Brussels.

The firm has one of the biggest antitrust teams in Russia with more than twelve years’ experience and is one of the few law firms in Russia that have a dedicated Competition Practice with a significant focus on antitrust audits and antitrust litigation. 

Our practical experience in antitrust is more diversified compared with some other firms in Russia. We have experience in antitrust litigation and competition cases in antimonopoly authorities, merger and strategic enterprise clearances, antitrust audits, structuring of distribution contracts, advice in public procurement (government contracts) and public procurement litigation. 

Our associates are active members of expert organisations liaising with the FAS of Russia with a view to improving the country’s antimonopoly legislation.
