He regularly coordinates multi-jurisdictional merger filings.

Jens Peter also represents clients in cartel case investigations, structures compliance programmes, and provides assessments of vertical and horizontal arrangements, including information exchanges. He advises on state aid issues, in particular in the context of the financial crisis.

IFLR 2015 Guide to the World’s Leading Financial Law Firms ranks Jens Peter as a "Leading Lawyer for EU Competition."
