Legal advice and other legal services regarding the application of Russian antitrust laws
Legislation on the protection of competition makes a number of requirements on how to organize the activities of companies, and not only those that occupy a significant position in the Russian market. Risks of non-compliance with antimonopoly legislation are very significant: from significant amounts of fines to bringing officials to criminal liability.
In this regard, almost any company in its activities have to take into account the requirements of the antimonopoly legislation. To rid itself of the risks of accusation of illegal restriction of competition and monopolistic activities, to prevent damage to its business reputation, to provide pre-trial and judicial protection of its interests in case of an antimonopoly dispute with the FAS Russia or with competitors, such companies need qualified legal support.
Variability of the legal norms of the antimonopoly legislation requires an individual approach to each client.
