Competition and State Aid

Due to globalization and the high number of mergers and acquisitions that take place each day, the market competition has to be maintained by regulating the conduct of companies.

We advise our clients on all aspects of competition law. By using our knowledge and the help of accounting professionals, economists and financial analysts we are able to provide comprehensive risk assessments.

In case of mergers, we work together with the corporate departments and provide advice on the process and applications for merger clearances, where required.

NZA assists clients during investigations conducted by the Competition Council and in all litigious matters deriving from the outcome of such investigations, especially challenges against decisions imposing fines for anti-competitive practices.

Our lawyers have diverse expertise in assessing State Aid measures across different sectors, and have provided assistance in multiple unlawful state aid litigation.
