PRACTICE

The firm covers all areas of competition law: restrictive agreements / abuse of dominance, merger control, and state aid. Depending on the client’s needs, the firm also provides transaction support and business law advisory.

Merger filings

Representing clients in merger control procedures, both concerning no-issue extraterritorial transactions and in complex transactions expected to raise competition concerns.

Antitrust investigations

Significant experience in representing clients in antitrust investigations before the competition authority is one of the firm’s distinctions.

Individual exemption of restrictive agreements

Serbia, Montenegro, and Bosnia and Herzegovina all still have a system of individual exemption based on pre-notification to the competition authority (comparable to the system which in the EU existed under EC Regulation 17/62).

Advisory

Drafting legal opinions and providing advice concerning competition-related and business law issues.

Distribution / agency / franchising

Distribution, agency, and franchising agreements often have competition law implications; the firm assists both with their analysis and with their drafting.

Compliance & training

Implementation of competition compliance programs and compliance training.

Transaction support

Transaction support to both local and cross-border deals, including due diligence and making sure that the transaction documents are in line with the law.
