Welcome to the First Edition of the Quarterly Newsletter of the Wolf Theiss Competition and Antitrust Practice Group.
We are pleased to introduce to you the first issue of the WOLF THEISS Competition & Antitrust Insider. The newsletter covers important developments in 13 jurisdictions in the CEE/SEE region on a quarterly basis, namely:
ALBANIA, AUSTRIA, BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA, BULGARIA, CROATIA, CZECH REPUBLIC, HUNGARY, POLAND, ROMANIA, SERBIA, SLOVAK REPUBLIC, SLOVENIA and UKRAINE.
Local competition authorities throughout CEE/SEE are increasing their scrutiny of companies in many sectors. Our quarterly newsletter will be a handy reference that will help you keep up with the fast-paced developments in the quickly changing markets of CEE/SEE.
In this first issue we take a look at legislative and procedural developments that affect companies' operations in the region, including one of highest fines for gun jumping in Austria, the sector inquiries launched by the Bulgarian Competition Authority, efforts to identify bid rigging in Romania and why it has become more difficult to prove cartel agreements in Croatia. Learn more about these and other topics on the document further below.
