EU and Competition
Competition Law – Swedish as well as EU provisions – basically affect all entities and commercial operations, regardless of whether they do business in Sweden, within the EU or in other parts of the world. Restrictions of competition involve the risk of far-reaching financial consequences for companies as well as their representatives. These risks include e.g. administrative fines for competition law violations, damages or penalties and the invalidity of agreements or separate provisions in agreements as well as complications in connection with mergers and acquisitions. Appropriate advice and assistance can help avoid or at least minimize such risks; the complex competition legal framework may even be used to our clients’ advantage, e.g. in commercial negotiations.
