Competition & EU

Spain

The competition authorities now possess greater powers to investigate, prohibit and severely punish corporate antitrust practice, force disinvestments and inhibit transactions. Moreover, there is an additional risk of private damages claims through the courts as a result of antitrust practice. Thus, complying with regulation and mitigating risks is key. Our team advises companies in view of domestic and European competition authorities, using its vast experience to ensure that clients are able to operate within a secure environment.

We act for clients in all areas of competition law: cartels, distribution agreements and other agreements comprising horizontal and vertical restraints, abuse of dominance, merger control, private enforcement, state aid, investigations and compliance, with our sector-focused approach enabling us to obtain a greater understanding of each client’s business environment.

The CMS competition group is one of the largest competition teams in Europe. We offer a global one-stop-shop solution to clients across all their competition law needs and boast a specialist competition law office located in Brussels.
