The Application of European Competition Law in the Financial Services Sector

Thomas Franchoo, Niels Baeten and Jennifer Baker, all Linklaters explore The Application of European Competition Law in the Financial Services Sector.

ABSTRACT: State aid control is still dominated by the application of the Crisis Communications to government support granted to restructure or resolve failing financial institutions. Antitrust enforcement has focused in particular on card payments, with the Commission sending a new Statement of Objections to MasterCard in relation to its interchange fees. It has been a quiet year on the merger control scene—with the Commission mainly dealing with payment services and remedies being imposed in one case only (Worldline/Equens/PaySquare).
