Competition Law – Opportunities and risks in competitive behavior and contract structuring.

Companies have an ongoing obligation to assess whether their conduct vis-à-vis competitors, suppliers, customers or in associations complies with competition law. The same applies to associations which must bring their conduct in line with the standards set out by competition law.

Here, it is necessary to have a keen sense for recognizing which conduct, agreements and decisions are permitted from a competition law perspective and which raise concerns or are prohibited. Only a thorough knowledge of competition law allows to avoid or at least mitigate the risks involved. Frequently, competition law arguments can be used as “leverage” in negotiations.
