Competition Law

Competition law pursues the goal of free competition. In this specialist area, we support companies in the area of unfair competition, which is also called "fair competition law".

Fair competition law comprises the rules of fair economic conduct which every company has to comply with when competing for the supply and purchase of economic services. It serves to protect competitors and consumers as well as the general interest in undistorted competition.

The law on unfair competition covers in particular the application of the law against unfair competition (UWG). The UWG is the legal foundation for the punishment of a large number of actions that are contrary to the applicable law. It regulates conduct, especially between competitors, where it is not uncommon for competition violations to occur.

Conceivable consequences of an infringement of competition law are the discussion of a warning notice together with a request for a cease-and-desist declaration, the initiation of proceedings for a preliminary injunction, claims for damages as well as an action for an injunction by a company which believes its rights have been infringed by another market participant.
