Competition and procurement law

Specialised Law

Sharpened rules demand greater focus within the companies

The strict enforcement of both the Danish competition legislation and EU competition law combined with the very serious sanctions (among others the possibility for imprisonment of senior staff) entail that the competition law is a field in which all companies must make an effort to abide. However, competition law does not only provide your company with challenges – but it also provides opportunities.

Focus Advokater’s department of competition law is well-established as a leading counsellor to companies in Denmark and abroad within all areas of the competition law.
