We help you navigate the diverse regional regulatory landscape to achieve the desired result.

Competition/anti-trust legislation and the rules governing state aid are in flux across much of Emerging Europe, Turkey and Central Asia. Charting a course through the region’s changing regulatory landscape while minimising exposure to risk requires expert legal advice backed up by the know-how to get the job done.

We bring to the table deep understanding of legislative details across multiple jurisdictions, together with the proven ability to quickly develop strategies that will protect your business and deliver results. Our experts have helped to clear some of the largest transactions in the region and assist both international and domestic investors with the full range of competition and state aid issues.

We have diverse experience across a broad range of sectors and have overseen successful outcomes in matters involving:

  • merger control
  • joint ventures
  • unfair competition
  • abuse of dominant position
  • cartel agreements
  • dawn raids/cartel busting
  • public procurement
