Companies' activities must comply with the relevant competition rules that govern their commercial practices and set conditions for mergers with other companies, which may constitute a significant risk in the case of restricting trade practices, cartels, abuse of dominant position, or unlawful state aid.
Almain advises its clients on these subjects, particularly in the context of merger control procedures with the French and European competition authorities, as well as competent foreign authorities through its network of local counsels.
The firm also has extensive experience in horizontal and vertical agreements. The firm is able to advise its clients about competition risks related to their cooperation and distribution agreements, and to organise compliance audits.
