Competition/ Anti-trust

Competition/ Anti-trust

Competition/ Anti-trust constitutes one of our main areas of expertise. We advise Greek and foreign companies involved in M&A transactions (acquisitions, divestitures, establishment of joint ventures), that trigger notification obligations under either Greek or EU competition authorities or in specialised cooperation agreements. We advise businesses operating in Greece through local subsidiaries or distributors on matters of compliance with Greek and EU antitrust regulations (particularly Articles 1 and 2 of the Greek Competition Act, as well as articles 101 and 102 of the TFEU Regulation 330/2010). We also provide comprehensive antitrust law compliance seminars and dawn raid simulation support to management teams of companies active in different industries. We advise clients involved in sector specific inquiries and dawn raids conducted by the Hellenic Competition Commission (HCC) and represent them before HCC hearings as well as before administrative courts in the course of follow up litigation in antitrust law disputes. Our firm works closely with major European and US law firms with a strong antitrust practice, analysing the ramifications of the Greek competition law for the international transactions of their clients. Members of the competition-antitrust group combine across-the-board practical exposure with a solid theoretical background of competition law.   

Our competition law practice covers  a series of “traditional” sectors (e.g. food and non food retail markets, cash and carry, oil and gas, energy, financial services, insurance, cosmetics, educational books), but over the years  we have also expanded to such cutting-edge sectors as shipping, pharmaceuticals, automotive, media, disinfectants, waste management, recycling and brewing. We represent clients in the handling of civil lawsuits for antitrust violation.

Our firm has been involved, inter alia, in the following projects, divided among several categories:
