Antitrust Law Compliance
We support the implementation of the programme and training courses, but also the review through compliance audits and evaluation of self-purification measures in the context of the competition register of the Federal Antitrust Office. In this we work closely with our specialists in adjacent legal areas or experts for other compliance topics such as regulatory or criminal law. Increasingly, companies must rapidly clarify whether regulations were actually complied with. We conduct the entire “internal investigation“ or support legal departments and internal audit.

In merger control, we direct the entire notification process up to approval. In advance of national and international mergers, we identify antitrust law risks and develop possible solutions.
Market Dominance, Abuse Controls
We clarify the particular behaviour requirements of companies with market power and develop options for the implementation of strategic company decisions. Companies occupying a dominant or strong position in the market are subject to special antitrust law restrictions including those on the structure of discount systems or the prohibition of discrimination vis-à-vis customers. The possibility of price control arising from the prohibition of abuse is especially important.
