Our practice is a market leader, with a history dating back to Greece’s accession to the EU and a successful track record of advising in landmark competition and antitrust matters, including merger control cases, cartel investigations and related litigation, concerted and restrictive practices, market and sectoral investigations, abuse of dominance and State aid cases.
Our clients include Greek, foreign and multi-national corporations. We have also advised government bodies on the implementation of the directives liberalising State monopolies and represented Greece in negotiations with the EU on State aid granted to Greek industries.
A significant part of our EU, Competition & Antitrust practice is dedicated to assisting clients on an ongoing basis on risk and strategy assessment and regulatory compliance. We advise on compliance strategies and run training programs for investigations by the competition authorities tailored to the individual requirements of our clients. These include designing reaction policies and offering on-site assistance in dawn raids as well as running mock-dawn raids.
We also work extensively with the Firm’s M&A and Privatisations groups in advising on the EU, competition and antitrust aspects of cross-border and cross-section transactions. Our specialisation extends to sector specific experience across a number of highly regulated industry sectors.
