Careers

We are a law firm specialising in antitrust and competition law.

Cartel proceedings are not only a legal challenge. Rather, cartel proceedings confront a company with numerous other tasks outside of legal issues. Cartel proceedings therefore not only require a legal dispute, but also, for example, concrete measures in the area of corporate communication as well as - in the case of threatened cartel proceedings - economic policy.
