Competition law sets the framework within which companies can compete with each other. It governs business-to-business and business-to-government cooperation. Compliance with competition law is essential if businesses are to avoid financial problems and reputational damage.
Our specialists help entrepreneurs and public authorities prevent breaches of competition rules. We advise on joint ventures and commercial contracts, and help organisations avoid abusing their dominant economic position. If you are planning a merger, we will quickly clarify whether a merger notification is mandatory, and assist you with the notification whether inside or outside the Netherlands. We advise on the application of state aid rules as well. We also assist clients in the event of raids and litigation arising from competition law infringements.
