Cartel Regulation 2012 Getting the Deal Through

Getting the Deal Through, the renowned legal guides that have become an invaluable addition to the arsenal of legal practitioners, has just published its highly important Cartel Regulation 2012  guide. The guide, a multi-jurisdictional insight into how the legislation of all major jurisdictions regulate anticompetitive behaviour, including collusions between competitors such as cartels, anticompetitive agreements and concerted practices.

As per its annual practice, Anastasios Antoniou LLC is the Cyprus contributor to Cartel Regulation 2012, which details in a clear and consice manner the provisions of the main legislation dealing with competition law in Cyprus, the Protection of Competition Law 113(I) of 2008. A new and intriguing element in this year’s contribution is our guidance on the Leniency and Immunity Programme of the Cyprus Commission for the Protection of Competition, which was enacted only late 2011.

Merger Control and Competition

Merger control, abuses of market dominance and unfair trading practices are areas in which we have established a leading practice. In an increasingly competitive world, regulating cartels and other anticompetitive practices is a fundamental aspect of a strong Economy.

We assist with victims of collusion in the market and advise on circumstances where a monopolistic or oligopolistic market suffers from abuse of dominance.

If your business is merging with another business, whether within Cyprus or as a foreign-to-foreign merger, or is forming a joint venture or acquiring another business, you may need clearance from the Cypriot competition authority. Learn more or contact us directly to discuss your circumstances.
