Competition law includes the entire sector of restrictive practices law, cartel law and trademark law.
Juconomy Attorneys provides comprehensive legal counsel on the development of new products, on checking, applying for, administering and defending trademarks, on developing advertising strategies and on the contractual implementation of sales structures.
Competition law, in particular advertising law, is characterised by intensive disputes among competitors. Even such institutions as consumer associations and the Central Office against Unfair Practices (Zentrale zur Bekämpfung unlauteren Wettbewerbs) respect adherence to the rules governing competition law. Cease-and-desist, injunctions and so-called protective writs form part of the everyday existence of competition lawyers. We have many years' intensive experience in this field.
In addition, both German and European cartel law has gained considerably in importance in the process of legal counsel provided to small and medium-sized enterprises. Above all, the law relating to vertical restraints of competition has become an irreplaceable feature of any comprehensive advisory service concerning sales law. The regulations governing the monitoring of misuse by market-dominating companies under cartel law and the prohibition of discrimination remain an important supplement to the regulations governing the respective branches of industry specified in the Telecommunications Act (Telekommunikationsgesetz – TKG), the Electricity and Gas Supply Act and the Postal Service Act (Postgesetz – PostG).
