Business decision makers need to understand the impact of competition laws and take them into account in strategic planning and every day operations. As the EU authorities introduce strict competition legislation and enforcement becomes more rigorous, legal advice on competition law becomes more and more important. Lawyers have to understand where cooperation with the regulator is better than defending clients against the regulator’s decisions. Also, antitrust issues are being brought in commercial disputes before the courts in high stakes litigation, often bringing impact on the future direction of strategic business plans.
