Edouard Sarrazin

DLA Piper (Paris)
Lawyer (Partner)

Edouard Sarrazin has expertise in both French and European competition law and possesses a wealth of experience, with particular knowledge of contentious competition matters, most notably in the context of cartels. His expertise in this area encompasses related practical issues such as optimizing the use of economists and lobbyists, as well as those raised by the frequently multijurisdictional nature of such cases (class actions, the use of blocking statutes, and the criminal responsibility of directors and employees). Notably, he advised a major player in the air transport sector on an international cartel inquiry in the air freight sector conducted by a number of antitrust authorities worldwide (including the US Department of Justice and the European Commission). His practice also comprises advising on unilateral practices and anticompetitive 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 multijurisdictional notifications are required, and representing third-parties wishing to contest the approval of a transaction.
