Antitrust and Competition Law
From owner-managed sole proprietorships to multinational, global corporations, all companies are bound by the regulations of antitrust law. The importance of antitrust law has increased significantly in recent years – not least due to ever higher fines. Therefore, an early anti-trust assessment is essential, especially in the context of company acquisitions and mergers.
