The field of antitrust law is becoming more and more important, as is shown by the large number of proceedings in infringement cases conducted by both EU and national authorities, such as “Elevator anti trust litigation” etc.
We advise national and international companies in all areas of antitrust and competition law. We represent our clients before the Austrian competition authorities, and in non-adversarial proceedings. Our main specialisms are merger notifications and representation in national and international mergers. We have recently managed the successful merger of Croatian and Slovakian financial institutions.
In the area of competition law, we represent companies and associations against unfair competitors and price discrimination.
We also evaluate contracts for compliance with EU antitrust law (and its many General Block Exemption Regulations).
In the area of unfair competition, we represent our clients in legal disputes against unfair competitors in the fields of industry and commerce.
We proactively advise trading partnerships and advertising agencies in their campaigns, ensuring that they comply with the Unfair Trade Practices Act (UWG).
