About

Provided by Schoenherr

Schoenherr's competition, eu & foreign trade practice advises clients from across all industries on the European and national levels throughout the firm's network in Central Europe.

Schoenherr has built up a notable track record in antitrust cases and non-litigious competition matters. The team has participated in virtually all recent antitrust cases of note in Austria, with a similar track record in the CEE/SEE region.

The team is also recognised for its expertise in merger control. With its strong network, the team acts as a one-stop-shop for clients in multijurisdictional transactions and is regularly retained for notifications to the European Commission.

In the field of foreign direct investment reviews, Schoenherr helps clients navigate the national laws affecting cross-border investment and to consider issues upfront to mitigate any potential risks.

Schoenherr also features one of Austria's most prominent practices in State aid.

To improve the position of SMEs in the food supply chain, the EU has adopted legislation that bans certain unfair trading practices. Corresponding national rules are often stricter than their EU counterparts. Our team helps clients navigate this patchwork and structure their contractual relationships accordingly.

From its Brussels office, Schoenherr's team advises on all aspects of EU law, such as assisting companies in respect of Member State measures which conflict with EU law.
