Competition law has become of increasing significance in recent decades. KPP Law provides very high quality services to the increasing number of companies that are affected by the enforcement of national as well as international competition law. Our dedicated lawyers have significant work experience in European, Greek and UK competition law, having worked on competition cases in support of corporate clients as well representing the enforcement authorities (the Hellenic Competition Commission and the UK Office of Fair Trading) in a wide variety of markets and sectors, including motor vehicles, media, oil, consumer goods, pharmaceuticals, detergents, books, movie distribution, and the insurance sector.

The multi-national and multi-lingual nature of our team allows us to understand the national policy concerns that shape global competition policy and to maintain strong relationships with enforcement agencies.  In parallel, we actively participate in the relevant academic debate with our lawyers’ internationally acknowledged research.

Our competition law practice supports companies in a full range of competition issues including:
• Notification of mergers and acquisitions before the competent competition authorities. We work with clients to develop their merger strategy, combining commercial, legal and often political considerations to maximise the chance of a successful outcome
• Advice and representation of companies involved in cartel cases, including applications for leniency, corporate statements and dawn raids. As fines increase, this can have a major impact on a company’s total financial exposure, both in terms of regulatory fines and damages from civil claims
• Advising on the procedural and substantive issues arising from abuse of dominance investigations both on behalf of dominant companies as well as complainants. Regulators in both Greece and Europe are committed to vigorous enforcement against such practices
• Advising clients on state aid, in particular in relation to the repayment of unlawful state aid and managing recovery proceedings
• Public procurement and utilities regulation
• Advice to and representation of companies in vertical restraints cases, such as licensing, distribution and franchise agreements 

Our lawyers also work closely with companies in the development and application of compliance programmes, which is key in the current political climate.
