What you will gain

You can expect more than legal advice from our antitrust law practice. We will listen to you, apprehend your legal and commercial challenges and assist you with our absolute determination to achieve your goals.

Merger control

Starting in the planning phase for transactions, we will advise you regarding potential merger control risks to ensure that these are considered during the transaction process in good time.

We will help you obtain the necessary approvals from the competent antitrust authorities, conduct proceedings before the German Federal Cartel Office and the European Commission and coordinate applications with cartel agencies worldwide.


For suspected violations of antitrust law, we will help our clients to rapidly clarify the circumstances and pursue an appropriate, consistent defence strategy in order to prevent damages to the company and its employees.

Our work encompasses immediate support in case of investigations by the antitrust authorities, filing leniency applications and handling legal disputes with antitrust authorities and before courts.
