In recent years, competition disputes have increased significantly and in Europe especially, record breaking fines imposed by the European Commission and national competition authorities are one reason for the surge in appeals against infringement decisions.
Competition matters feature in many corporate and commercial transactions, and our lawyers have unmatched skills and experience in giving practical, commercial advice on complex national and European competition law matters. They have guided clients through important transactions, including the facilitation of significant mergers and acquisitions, and boast a strong record of success in numerous merger reviews.
Our track record of advising on complex, high-value and sensitive competition cases is extensive, and we have worked for numerous prominent clients, considered industry leaders, across various key industry sectors: financial services; energy; infrastructure, mining and commodities; transport; and technology and innovation.
Our firm’s experienced competition team advises our clients, primarily for ensuring that any proposed agreements (whether of a horizontal or vertical nature) or practices will not be deemed anti-competitive by the Commission for the Protection of Competition Law in Cyprus. Our aim is to enable clients to achieve their strategic commercial goals.
Our competition practice is also widely acknowledged for its leading expertise in matters of competition litigation. We have successfully represented clients before the Cyprus Competition Commission on various occasions; presenting before the said Commission arguments, in support of various transactions that our firm notified to the same, and in rebuttal of allegations made against clients for anti-competitive agreements or concerted practices.
