Antitrust

Antitrust related issues not only play a central role in merger and acquisitions, but also in the general activity of every business entity. This comprises, e.g. the conception of distribution systems, the design of R&D co-operations or the wording of purchase or supply contracts. Finally, antitrust compliance, i.e. the constant screening of one´s own conduct with regard to antitrust issues, becomes more and more important, not only with respect to hardcore cartels.
