Competition law

Competition law and especially antitrust law is inextricably linked to concepts such as economic freedom and the free market. Economic freedom presupposes that entrepreneurs act independently. The free market, on the other hand, is the entirety of economic events that take place between independent entrepreneurs and thus undergoes constant transformation. Both values, economic freedom and the free market require constant protection against threats, the most serious of which are anti-competitive agreements and cases of abuse of a strong market position by entities holding it. The task of our Law Firm in this respect is to protect business entities against market abuse consisting in depletion of economic freedom of some entrepreneurs by other entities, in particular:

  • Analysis of distribution systems in terms of their compliance with antimonopoly regulations
  • Preparation of concentration notifications to the President of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection
  • Representing Clients in proceedings before the President of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection
  • Representing Clients in proceedings before the Court of Competition and Consumer Protection
  • Representing Clients in cases of agreements infringing competition
  • Representing Clients in matters related to the abuse of their dominant position.

The Competition Protection Law is a broad branch of law, which also includes issues related to activities that are considered as Unfair Competition Acts. The task of the Law Firm in this respect is to defend the interests of entrepreneurs against actions contrary to the law or good morals, in particular:

  • Using the designation of an enterprise misleading potential clients,
  • Use of a false, fraudulent or misleading designation of goods or services,
  • Violation of business secrets,
  • Inducing termination or non-performance of the contract,
  • Imitation of products,
  • Slander or unfair praise,
  • Obstructing market access,
  • Use of unfair or prohibited advertising,
  • Organizing an avalanche sales system and running or organizing activities in a consortium system.
