Podcast: Recent and expected key developments in Polish and German competition law

  • Poland
  • Competition, EU and Trade


Poland is currently planning to implement the ECN+ directive to provisions of the competition act – however, also other provisions are planned to be adopted. In Germany the laws are changing dynamically too: on January 19, 2021, new German antitrust rules entered into force. All these amendments – both upcoming and already binding – are of great importance from the business risk perspective.

In the podcast "Recent and expected key developments in Polish and German competition law“ Fabrice Witzke (Principal Associate, Antitrust Law, Germany) and Dr. Dariusz Aziewicz (Senior Associate, Competition Law, Poland) share important information concerning new antitrust risks in both countries and answer, among others, the following questions:

  • May the whole capital group be liable in case one of its companies breaches competition law?
  • Can effective compliance programs lead to a reduced fine imposed by the German Federal Cartel Office?
  • What are the new merger control thresholds in Germany?
