The evolution of business life has led many enterprises to seek ways of co-operation and expansion in order to consolidate, survive and flourish in today's highly competitive environment.

In light of the above, an apparent need to control such transactions has emerged, which has eventually resulted to the enactment of competition and antitrust legislation, into the Greek as well as the international business reality. Greek competition law and administrative practice undergo continuously a natural harmonisation with the competition provisions under EC law.

Within such a constantly evolving field of law, our firm can offer valuable experience gained through dealing with a substantial number of cases involving agreements between undertakings of various sizes and nationalities, of the private as well as of the public sector in Greece and abroad.

The services provided by our firm cover all stages of the relevant procedures anticipated by law encompassing restrictive agreements, merger control, State aid and other trade restrictions. The firm's competition group has in many cases worked closely with our litigation group in commercial disputes involving concentration and market dominance implications.

Moreover, we are closely cooperating with other law firms around the world in order to deal efficiently with cases involving international transactions or regulatory control and facilitate multi-national strategic planning. Pre-emptive action through antitrust audits also forms part of such compliance strategy.
