Every year, the work of our experts results in more than 200 reports, studies, and analyses. Most of them are published and available on our website.
Sometimes our work resonates and has a direct impact on the public agenda. At other times, it contributes more subtly to the making of superior decisions within a company, organisation, or courtroom.
The number of foreign takeovers of EU firms in potentially sensitive sectors has been relatively stable over time but the average deal value has increased. That could the an argument for increased screening of FDI into the EU, however investment patters in individual Member States vary across different types of investors, the sectoral composition and the origin of the acquirer.
For FDI screening to be both effective and efficient, a place-based approach is required where the need for increased FDI screening is carefully balanced against the potential costs. That is one of the key conclusions in our recent study commissioned by the Danish Business Authority.
The study is based on a unique database on FDI flows into individual EU Member States during 2003-2016 and provides an overview of M&As by third country investors in potentially sensitive sectors and M&As by state-owned enterprises (SOEs). We have also used the experience from selected EU Member States to identify initiatives that can improve the efficiency of FDI screening procedures.

On 30 January, competition expert Karl Lundvall speaks at a non-financial compliance summit hosted by Tools 4 Integrity. The summit is the first of its kind and is customized for the need of companies with business in several Nordic jurisdictions and internationally.
The aim of the summit is to cover the practical implications of current regulations, the complexity of competition law cases and different outlooks on the future. In this regard, Karl Lundvall is invited to offer his view on vertical restraints, and discuss which cases are likely to cause consumer harm and which cases authorities should prioritise. Following his presentation, Karl Lundvall will be moderating a panel discussion on differences in the application of competition law by competition authorities and courts in the Nordics.
Other speakers include Rikard Jermsten, Director General of the Swedish Competition Authority and Bitten Thorgaard Sørensen, Deputy Director General of the Danish Competition and Consumer Authority
