EileenLagathu

Counsel

Paris + 33.1.56.59.39.32

Plus de 10 ans de pratique ont permis à Eileen Lagathu d’acquérir une expérience significative des différentes facettes du droit de la concurrence européen et français, tant en matière de contrôle des concentrations que d’aides d’Etat et d’enquêtes pour cartels de la Commission européenne ou de l’Autorité de la concurrence. Elle a également représenté des clients dans de nombreux contentieux devant le Tribunal et la Cour de Justice de l’UE, ainsi que devant la Cour d’appel de Paris, dans des affaires emblématiques, qui ont contribué à façonner la jurisprudence relative aux amendes.

Eileen Lagathu accompagne quotidiennement les clients dans l’élaboration de leurs contrats commerciaux, notamment des accords de R&D ou d’exclusivité, et plus généralement, dans la structuration de leurs réseaux de distribution. Elle les aide également à mettre en place des mesures de conformité. Elle conseille également des multinationales sur les questions de contrôle des concentrations soulevées par leurs transactions (cessions d’actifs, de titres, créations de JV). Elle travaille régulièrement sur des notifications à la Commission européenne ou à l’Autorité de la concurrence, et la coordination de notifications multi-juridictionnelles.

Elle représente régulièrement des clients dans les secteurs énergétique, pharmaceutique, bancaire et financier, ce qui lui a permis d’acquérir une compréhension approfondie de ces domaines.

Eileen Lagathu a une connaissance particulièrement développée en matière d’amendes, en sa qualité de co-auteur, depuis 2013, de l’étude annuelle : Law on Fines Imposed in EU Competition Proceedings, publiée par la revue JECLAP (Oxford Academic).
