Competition

It is just a fact that, either as a new entity or an expanding already existing player on the market, the EU Competition Law provisions have become a very important part in the everyday business conduct of any company and every transaction in which it is involved. Due to its complex nature and very specific industry-related character, legal advice in the competition area should be provided only by experts, with significant experience and extensive understanding of the client’s needs.

Our attorneys have significant experience in competition/antitrust and State aid law, being involved in numerous field-related projects. Our full-service competition practice deals with various matters including merger control, anti-competitive contractual provisions, abuse of dominant position/sole market conduct, investigations conducted by the Romanian Competition Council (RCC), competition litigation, State aid, trade law, public procurement and specific industry-related regulations.

In providing assistance to our local and international clients, our experts employ economic theory and methods, grounded in a thorough understanding of the market in order to provide a full range of analysis in matters involving competition compliance, mergers and acquisitions and joint-ventures clearances, antitrust litigation, competition policy, State aid and unfair competition.

Our team has extensive experience in dealing with regulatory matters, which, together with our business and economic expertise, gives us the possibility to offer high-quality support to our clients in a full range of competition matters.

We constantly deal with matters requiring representation of our clients before the RCC and relevant EU authorities. It is our belief that keeping a close eye on the authorities’ practice helps us to a better understanding of their approach, enabling us to offer the most suitable advice to the clients.
