Lecturer (Doctoral Candidate)

Helene Andersson is a doctoral candidate and lecturer at the University of Stockholm. Her research is mainly focused on the investigatory powers of the European Commission and the Swedish Competition Authority. Helene has experience also from private practice as she was part of the Swedish law firm Delphi’s Competition Practice Group for almost twelve years. During her time at Delphi she advised clients on all kinds of competition law matters, but over the years came to specialize in cartel issues. She represented one of the firm’s clients before Swedish courts in the petrol cartel case, one of Sweden’s largest cartel litigations to date. She has also represented other clients targeted by the Swedish Competition Authority in cartel investigations. Given her extensive experience in cartel issues, she headed a number of compliance programs for clients in varying industries. In 2003, Helene serviced at the Washington D.C. offices of Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP where she got valuable insight in the handling of cartel matters before U.S. antitrust enforcement agencies and courts.
