Competition Law / Antitrust Law

The enforcement and maintenance of fair competition is a particular professional concern for us. We have years of experience in this field. The range of our successful competition disputes, both out of court and in court, is striking. Whether you want to issue a warning to a competitor or have received one - we are the right contact person for you.

Our competition law work focuses on:

  • The enforcement of claims under competition law both before the courts and out of court, for forbearance, information and compensation (Section 8 et seq of the German Act on Unfair Competition [UWG] and Section 33 of the Restrictive Practices Act [GWB]), if a competitor has infringed competition law (e.g. by issuing a warning and/or by applying for an injunction);
  • Defence of unjustified claims by competitors or consumer protection organisations, particularly  defence against warnings;
  • The audit of all types of advertising (e.g. websites, printed media campaigns and promotions) for admissibility under competition law;
  • Defence against criminal prosecution for any offences under UWG (Section 16 UWG - Advertising incurring criminal liability; Section 17 UWG - Disclosure of trade and industrial secrets; Section 18 UWG - Use of models; Section 19 UWG - Suborning and offering).
