Competition Law

Competition law encompasses a range of legislation aimed at restricting unfair commercial practices and fostering a healthy competitive business environment. It includes anti-trust legislation, legislation on unfair competition, as well as specialised legislation such as the German Telemedia Act, the German Pharmaceuticals Act, the German Price Quotation Act and the German Fixed Book Price Act.

Competition law lays out general rules which aim to protect commercial products and services. Businesses, competitors, consumers and other market actors are protected from unfair practices and fair competition is facilitated. Under competition law businesses are largely free to pursue infringements of their rights.
