Competition law

Commercial transactions today have become increasingly international and may have an impact across a number of countries. They regularly affect not only Italian rules and regulations, but those of the European Union and other jurisdictions. Our Italian lawyers work closely together with our colleagues in Orrick’s European, U.S. and Asian offices.

Orrick lawyers provide their clients with legal assistance in relation to the Italian Code for Consumers’ Protection (set forth by Legislative Decree no. 206/2005 which has been amended by Legislative Decree no. 146/2007 pursuant to European Directive 2005/29/CE) on unfair business practices and on the relevant prohibitions. Furthermore, our assistance on this matter is linked with the class action regulation. All the above mentioned matters are supervised by the Italian Antitrust Authority (AGCM - Autorità Garante per la Concorrenza e il Mercato).

Our services in the antitrust and competition area include:

  • concentrations
  • enforcement of EC and national competition law
  • legal advice and assistance on competition law
  • unfair commercial practices.
