Competition and consumer protection

Legal safety depends on i.e. companies ensuring that they operate in compliance with the requirements of competition law (anti-monopoly law) and consumer protection law. Specialist DZP lawyers provide professional advisory in the form of:

  • assessing whether planned activity complies with both competition and consumer law and proposing solutions enabling business objectives to be met while ensuring that activity complies with the law,
  • representing clients in proceedings before the President of the Competition and Consumer Protection Office (UOKIK) involving restrictive practices, abuse of a dominant market position, and practices infringing collective consumer interests,
  • assessing whether a contemplated transaction has to be notified to the UOKiK President or European Commission,
  • drawing up concentration applications and representing clients during anti-monopoly proceedings run by the UOKIK President in matters related to concentrations,
  • legal support for clients injured by non-competitive measures of businesses and representation of clients in disputes over breach of competition law,
  • advice on claiming compensation due to breach of competition protection law by way of private enforcement,
  • representing clients in court cases involving anti-competitive and anti-consumer practices,
  • identifying practices infringing collective consumer interests, particularly in contract models used and taking steps to eliminate them,
  • reviewing distribution agreements and systems for compliance with competition law and in terms of changing distribution models and developing new solution implementation procedures,
  • drafting documentation for online sales.
