Competition law and internal market law constitute the basic pillars both of the EU and of the national legal orders. The production of legal documents is rich, with regard to both regulations, directives, decisions etc. and national legal instruments, which either transpose the EU legislative acts or regulate aspects of competition law and internal market law. The legal texts along with the case law of the Court of Justice, the General Court, the case law of the national Competition Authority and the national courts, complete the picture of one of the best regulated areas of EU law.

Our firm follows closely the developments in the field of competition and free movement and we are in position to provide integrated legal services to companies and private individuals on every aspect of competition or internal market law.
