Antitrust / Merger Control

We advise our German and international clients on all aspects of German and European cartel law, from drafting contracts to assisting them in their relations with government agencies and authorities to acting on their behalf in court proceedings.  A focus of our practice is advising on anti-competitive agreements (unfair competition), including European block exemption regulations.

In the field of merger control, we conduct proceedings before the Bundeskartellamt (German Federal Cartel Office) and before the European Commission.  We provide comprehensive advice, which ranges from reviewing the duty to notify to preparing the notification and to the completion of the process. Where necessary, we provide advice in cooperation with law firms from our Global Network on those proceedings which are not conducted before the Bundeskartellamt (German Federal Cartel Office) or the European Commission.
