Sarah Blazek advises clients on all aspects of European and German antitrust and competition law, including the coordination of merger control filings involving multiple jurisdictions. She represents clients in competition authorities’ fine proceedings before the European Commission and the German Federal Cartel Office. Besides this, she advises on compliance issues and assists clients in developing and implementing compliance programmes. Sarah also advises on current digital antitrust issues.
