Morten yder specialistrådgivning inden for alle områder af EU-konkurrenceret og dansk konkurrenceret, herunder grænseoverskridende fusionssager, internationale kartelundersøgelser, misbrug af dominerende stilling, distributionsstrategier, civile erstatningssager, "compliance programmer" og statsstøtte. Han har været såkaldt "resident partner" i Bruxelles 1996-2001 og partner i Kromann Reumert siden 2001.


Særligt i forhold til Europa-Kommissionen og Konkurrence- og Forbrugerstyrelsen har Morten indgående erfaring med indhentelse af fusionskontrolgodkendelser, herunder i komplekse fase 1- og fase 2-sager. Han har desuden deltaget i internationale og globale kartelundersøgelser som fx "Airfreight" og "Power Cables".

Morten har særligt flair for at forudse og forstå konkurrencemyndighedernes position og for at finde løsninger, som imødekommer myndighedernes betænkeligheder. Han udmærker sig i behandlingen af følsomme sager, der forudsætter indlevelse og diplomati som fx ved virksomheders interne undersøgelser i vanskelige kartelsager med henblik på sammen med ledelsens at fastlægge det rette sagsforløb til sikring af det bedst mulige udfald.

Morten er ofte den foretrukne procesadvokat til repræsentation af førende danske virksomheder i misbrugssager og har ført afgørende sager ved domstolene i Danmark og den Europæiske Union i Luxembourg, herunder i SAS/Maersk-sagen.
