Practice Areas

Competition Law

It is just a fact that, either as a new entity or an expanding already existing player on the market, the EU Competition Law provisions have become a very important part in the everyday business conduct of any company and every transaction in which it is involved. Due to its complex nature and very specific industry-related character, legal advice in the EU and National Competition Law area should be provided only by experts, with significant experience and extensive understanding of the client’s needs.

Corporate and M&A

We deal with challenges and work with our clients every step of the way, from company formation, organization and operation, to mergers, acquisitions and takeovers. You can rely on us to look out for your interests and make things happen, quickly and efficiently.

At all times we will weight up the risks and carefully assess every situation to achieve the best possible outcome for your business. We are experts in designing and delivering transactions that work for all parties and ensuring you get to completion as soon as possible.

In this context, pharmaceuticals and life sciences companies are experiencing a wave of new challenges facing consumer business models and focusing on delivering positive results: health, well-being and optimal management of illness among targeted populations. Therefore, the need for a team of lawyers who, besides having a good understanding of the legal provisions and of the status quo, have the capabilities and the enthusiasm to proactively help their clients facing the everyday industry challenges and permanently are challenging the so called “status quo”, is more than necessary.
