Business Law and Competition Law

We have extensive experience providing prescient advice on matters relating to competition law. One of our specialties is litigating competition cases, especially in proceedings to obtain an injunction. We provide counseling on ECG-violations, deceptive advertising, disparaging advertising claims, illegal comparative advertising, and all other forms of unfair competitive behavior (§ 1 UWG).

In this context, we also support our clients in the registration and use of national, international and community trademarks, as well as the protection of these and other intangible property rights, in particular the copyright.

Dr. Stefan Lausegger also has extensive experience with the national and European merger control regime, and the law on cartels, in particular the provisions on vertical agreements.
