Cartel investigations

Our firm represents a large number of companies and individuals in cartel investigations before the German Federal Cartel Office and the European Commission.

  1. In this context, we guide companies through the investigation stage, advise our clients when deciding whether to submit a leniency application with the possibility of being granted immunity from fines or a reduction of the level of the fines, work through the facts of the case in detail and work with our clients to develop a defence strategy. Via our international network of law firms we are able to also coordinate leniency applications worldwide.
