EU’s Vestager: We can win any Apple appeal

Apple and Ireland were Tuesday quick to announce plans to appeal the European Commission’s $14.5 billion tax ruling against the tech giant, but they shouldn’t forget who they are up against.

Margrethe Vestager, the EU’s hard-hitting competition commissioner, also known as “the Iron Lady of Denmark” for taking on corporate giants in antitrust cases, is determined in upholding the state-aid decision on AppleAAPL, -0.77% , remaining confident the case can stand up to any appeal.

“We have of course structured the case in a way that it’ll be upheld if it goes to court. That’s why it sometimes takes a long time to finish these investigations,” she said in an interview with MarketWatch.
