Focal point

Antitrust & distribution law

Based on in-depth expertise in European and Austrian antitrust law and the interdisciplinary exchange with the internal M&A team, PEHB regularly advises on major national and international corporate transactions.

In doing so, the focus is primarily on avoiding antitrust-relevant facts including the enforcement of antitrust claims (private enforcement).
