Everything about behaviors and competition restrictive agreements, such as price setting, market-sharing cartels and tying agreements.
Public and Private side of Competition Law.
When we are talking about Competition Law, a distinction should be made between its public side and its private side inasmuch as this part of law:
Sometimes, it results in a control by National Competition Market Commission in Spain, and by EU Directorate-General for Competition (public enforcement).
In other cases, it results in a control by Civil Courts in order to claim for the damages suffered by enterprises as a consequence of behaviors and competition restrictive agreements (private enforcement).
Hence, legal advice in Competition Law, should not only be focused in negotiating and drafting contracts or legal transactions, but should extended as well to litigation field. Thus, in SANCHIS & PARTNERS we also offer legal advice in the area of litigation concerning Competition Law, including its public side and private enforcement.
