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.
