Competition & EU Lawyers

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 to gain participation under fair and competitive acts and conditions.

 Therefore, competition authorities and regulators control mergers and acquisitions, investigate commercial agreements and penalize anticompetitive agreements and practices, review markets and impose fines. These regulations can have serious consequences for all market participants that are translated into frequent disputes regarding compliance of the legal provisions of unfair competition between companies, which may end in compensation or restrictions on the operations or transactions between companies.

 At CMS Rodríguez-Azuero we advise our clients in all areas of competition law, including consumer protection, particularly in cases where their interests are affected or at risk by unfair or illegal practices, as well as when they want to explore and make alliances and integrations that do not unfairly affect markets, consortiums, distribution agreements, agreements that include horizontal and vertical restrictions, significant market power and its abuse, control of concentrations, private application, inquiries and compliance. We also represent our clients in investigations, litigations or lawsuits where their actions as competitors are investigated. Practical, and sometimes innovative, solutions need to be found in a fast-moving commercial context.

 The International CMS Competition Group is one of the largest global competition teams. We offer our clients a comprehensive solution to all their needs, including technology apps, in the field of competition law throughout the world.
