Contribution to "Antitrust Litigation 2019"

Arntzen de Besche (Svein Terje Tveit, Andreas Nordby, Stein Ove Solberg and Espen I. Bakken) has written the Chambers and Partners Antitrust Litigation Trends & Developments chapter for Norway.

With intensified enforcement of the competition rules, an expected increase in antitrust litigation and an ever increasing complexity of the antitrust cases, the topic is increasingly relevant to Norwegian businesses and international businesses operating in Norway. 

The Trends & Developments chapter focuses on the drivers to the expected increase in antitrust litigation, public antitrust litigation, strategic assessments from a ‘defender’ perspective as to whether to settle with the Competition Authorities or challenge the decision and comment on private antitrust litigation and the jurisdictional issues to be decided shortly by the Norwegian Supreme Court, as well as Norwegian class action rules. Lastly, the chapter looks at the strategic question, from a plaintiff ’s perspective, as to when would be the right time to bring a damages action.

Arntzen de Besche is a full service law firm assisting with all aspects of competition law, including advocacy, counselling, investigations and litigation.
