Competition Law / Intellectual Property

Competition law questions regarding antitrust practices and unfair business practices arise both nationally and internationally when companies compete. They influence their behavior on the market. At the same time, the protection and exploitation of know-how, copyrights, trademarks and design in particular also play an important economic role for companies.

We represent companies in all areas of intellectual property protection, registration and protection of trademarks, licensing copyrights as well as protecting confidential business intelligence. We have extensive experience handling competition conflicts in the areas of unfair competition and private antitrust cases. Our golden rule when drafting contracts for clients is to avoid conflicts before they arise. We have experience representing clients in merger and merger control proceedings before national (Bundeskartellamt) and European antitrust authorities.
