Competition law impacts in all areas of a business’s commercial operations. It provides a legal framework to help ensure that businesses compete on a level playing field and offers protection for those that suffer from others acting unfairly. Competition law also aims to encourage businesses to innovate and improve for the benefits of their customers.
At TupperS Law we support clients in understanding competition law – both to be compliant in their activities, but also to identify non-compliance in others and challenge it as appropriate. If you find yourself on the wrong end of an allegation of anti-competitive behaviour, or the focus of a dawn raid by a regulator, we can assist you in assessing the risk, developing a strategy and help you resolve the issue.
The penalties for non-compliance can be significant: civil fines, regulatory infringement decisions, private damages actions, reputational harm and, in certain circumstances, criminal prosecutions.
