Competition law

Competition law in Spain during the last few years and in particular since the Competition Act 15/2007, constitutes a special area of risk of infringement and fines for companies and trade associations irrespective of their scope of activity. We provide, among others, advisory services as follows:

  • During dawn raids carried out by the Spanish CNC, the European Commission or other regional competition authorities;
  • Competition compliance programs for companies and trade associations;
  • Infringement proceedings initiated by the CNC, the European Commission or other regional authorities;
  • Leniency applications in cartel infringement proceedings;
  • Judicial proceedings against the Decisions of the CNC, the European Commission or other regional competition authorities;
  • Horizontal agreements between competitors (R&D, joint production, specialization, commercialization, joint purchasing, standardization agreements, etc.)
  • Vertical agreements (exclusive distribution, franchising, etc.);
  • Civil claims for damages arising from competition law infringements;
  • Notification of concentrations to the CNC and to the European Commission;
  • State aids.
