In particular in connection with privatisation and merger of hospitals, but also in the course of takeovers in other industries, we advise comprehensively on anti-trust issues. Risks of possible conditions are ascertained in advance of transactions and tender procedures. We prepare solutions accordingly and act in the merger control proceedings throughout all phases up to ministerial consent. Agreements are reviewed and drafted in accordance with the law in advance of possible competition restrictions. In cases of objections, we clarify whether breaches of cartel law arise and represent our clients in penalty proceedings as the case may be.
