Competition law

Competition law, the core area of community law, is probably the most emerging part of Union Law. Pappas & Associates bears solid experience in all four pillars of competition law, namely state aid; abuse of dominant position; anti-competitive collusion and merger control.

The cabinet has actively intervened at various instances in the domain of state aid, either in support of parties alleging the existence of a prohibited state aid, or on the contrary in order to demonstrate the non illegal character of granted aid. Equally, it has effectively contributed to the evolution of the jurisprudence produced by the Court of Justice of the European Union and to the investigation of cases by the European Commission’s Directorate General for Competition (for example C-521/06 P et C-362/09; T-384/08; T-419/11; T- 14/12; C 16/2004; CP 103/2003 ETBA Bank; CP 142/2010 CCB). However, the Cabinet’s case work is not limited to this area of activity. Pappas & Associates has intervened in proceedings for the infringement of articles 101 and 102 of the Treaty for the Functioning of the EU (for example, T-COMP/39416 Ship Classification; COMP/39064-EITISEE/EBU-ERT), and equally in merger controls run by the European Commission (for example T-163/03 Scania AB v. Commission; COMP/M.1980- Volvo/Renault VI)
