Competition Law

Competition law primarily serves two major areas: preventing unfair competition and the formation of cartels. Its legal basis lies mainly in the law against unfair competition (Gesetz gegen den unlauteren Wettbewerb; UWG), and the law against competition restrictions (Gesetz gegen Wettbewerbsbeschränkungen; GWB). Essentially, competition law pursues the goal of free competition.

Competition law - MTR Rechtsanwälte

Therefore, the UWG regulates practices between market participants, especially amongst competitors. It is not uncommon for anti-competitive practices to arise between competitors, which can be committed both consciously and unconsciously.

The consequences of this are frequent warnings, injunctions, claims for compensation and moreover actions for injunctions by a company which considers its rights breached by another market participant.

If you have received a warning, it is important to act quickly. Get legal advice immediately from a competent lawyer. We at MTR Rechtsanwälte provide you with a lawyer who is active in the field of competition law and is the best informed in this respect.
