Antitrust & Competition
Greek and EU competition law aims to ensure free competition by punishing monopolies and cartels. The main policy areas of EU Competition law, which is largely inspired by US antitrust law, include cartels, monopolies, merger controls and state aid. The same areas are also reflected in local laws implementing the relevant European Commission directives and guidelines.
With broad knowledge and international reach, our team provides full support in all aspects of EU and Greek law. We provide expert legal advice providing a safety catch (net) for businesses to troubleshoot the complexities of the relevant legal framework and confidently move forward to implement future goals.
We offer top-level, client-focused services, in close collaboration with associated counsel in Brussels, providing transaction support on all aspects of EU and Greek competition law. Given the strictness and complexity of the relevant legal framework, antitrust advice is of paramount importance to businesses, as cartel activity can entail substantial regulatory fines, dominant undertakings and controlled mergers can be disallowed and State aid may have to be refunded. In this context, our team also advises clients on business practices, antitrust audits, and compliance.
