Competition

It is a fact that, whether as a new entity or as an already existing company in the market looking to expand, EU Competition Law provisions have become a very important part of everyday business and every related transaction. 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 lawyers have significant experience in competition, antitrust and State Aid law, having been involved in numerous projects in these areas. Our comprehensive 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 industry specific regulations.

In providing assistance to our local and international clients, our experts apply economic theory and methods, grounded in a thorough understanding of the market, in order to provide a full analysis of matters involving competition compliance, mergers and acquisitions, joint venture 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 ability to offer high-quality support to our clients covering the full range of competition matters.

We are also experts in dealing with matters requiring representation on behalf of our clients before the RCC and relevant EU authorities.

We believe that keeping a close eye on the authorities’ practices helps us better understand their approach, and enabling us to offer the most relevant and appropriate advice to our clients.
