Antitrust & Competition

Being a universal law firm and harmonizing development of all legal practices, we pay special attention to improving legal services that can offer efficient solutions to current problems, business protection, and increased business efficiency. Within the framework of antitrust and competition practice, the team of our lawyers helps our clients develop balanced business strategies aimed at increasing company’s competitive power taking into account restrictions of the legislation.

Robust competition is an indispensable part of market relations and an important component of a successful business strategy of virtually any business. We are aware of this and constantly invest in development of antitrust and competition practice. That is why companies operating in different sectors of economy choose us as a reliable advisor for finding efficient solutions to antitrust issues emerging at all stages of the company development.

Specifically, our clients rely on us in complicated issues related to securing merger clearences from the antimonopoly authorities, comprehensive support in the issues related to protection from unfair competition, anti-competition coordinated actions and/or abuse of the monopoly position, representing our clients’ interests in the antitrust authorities during antitrust investigations and appealing against the antitrust authorities decisions pursuant to both administrative and judicial procedure. 

Success of the regular clients of our antitrust and competition practice is largely determined by the timely prevention of possible violations by introducing custom-made programs aimed at ensuring companies’ adherence to the competition law norms. Along with the preventive measures, we carry out antitrust audit of company activities with regard to compliance with the requirements of the applicable antitrust laws. Based on the audit results, we present a report with recommendations on minimizing or eliminating the identified risks.

Often, efficient solutions to complex projects in the area of competition law require fundamental understanding of business processes in a certain industry. Understanding how different sectors of economy (medicine and pharmaceuticals, retail trade and consumer goods, information technologies and telecommunications) function enables us to determine the basic risks individually for every company from the respective sector as well as typical company actions that may cause imposing penalty sanctions by the AMCU. Such approach enables our clients to run business legitimately and to receive maximum financial profits.

Our Antitrust and Competition practice has a powerful information resource that enables us to carry out a comprehensive analysis of economic indicators of the market. The use of this resource is the most relevant for tender organizers in order to discover a possible collusion among bidding participants as well as for bidding participants in case antitrust investigation regarding anti-competition coordinated action is initiated against them.
