Competition & EU


Competition authorities and regulators have extensive powers to control mergers and acquisitions, investigate commercial agreements and penalize anticompetitive agreements and practices, review markets and impose fines. These regulations can have serious consequences, including financial and reputational, for all types of organizations and their employees. 

Likewise, every day disputes are more frequent translated into compliance with the legal provisions of unfair competition between companies, which may end in compensation or restrictions on the operation of companies.

Contemporary economic development in countries with a capital or market structure is critically supported in the need to guarantee transparent and dynamic schemes where entrepreneurs compete with each other to gain participation through the supply of goods and services of the best quality and quality. the best price.
