Sound and effective advice on Competition matters

The Romanian economy is governed by both European Union and national competition regulations, the latter being carved out to a large extent in line with the EU framework. Moreover, Romanian competition authorities are actively and constantly monitoring the markets, being a prominent presence in terms of investigations, clearances and regulatory activity. Due to the substantial amount of the fines applied by the competition authorities as well as the bearing/impact of related measures, businesses have gradually started to accept that competition should play a key role in every corporate compliance system, that proper competition assessments should precede any move that is likely to trigger concerns from this perspective and that executive staff should be receive proper training in order to be able to determine the situations calling for such assessments as well as major red flags to be avoided.

In order to help our clients tackle competition aspects swiftly and efficiently, our lawyers are prepared to assist with the whole range of competition matters, irrespective of the concerned industry (telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, FMGC, technology, retails, financial institutions, etc.), spanning merger control assessments, notifications and clearance, assessments aimed at identifying regulatory risks in terms of anti-competitive agreements and abuse of dominant position as well as potential solutions, the whole range of proceedings before the relevant competition authorities including dawn raids, training sessions with the clients’ compliance team, as well as drafting of compliance programs and assistance concerning complex State aid matters.
