Competition & Procurement

Our experienced team advises on all aspects of competition and public procurement law across all sectors of industry, commerce, and services. We advise domestic and international clients on merger control and other M&A-related matters, public and private antitrust enforcement, state aid, competitive neutrality, and public procurement.

Our expertise covers both domestic and EU competition law including cartel investigations and any horizontal competition matters such as information exchange and other cooperation between competitors. We assist our clients in all affairs with the competition authority. Our team has solid experience in competition law litigation cases, such as competition damages matters and administrative legal proceedings in both competition infringement cases and public procurement matters.

We are also experienced in drafting distribution agreements, setting up distribution channels, and advising on vertical competition restrictions.

We prepare competition compliance policies for our clients and educate their personnel accordingly. We also assist our clients in internal audits related to competition law. Our team has created a dawn raid application to support companies in the event of a dawn raid by antitrust authorities.

Our clientele consists of domestic, international, private and listed companies alongside trade associations and public entities.
