Antitrust & Competition
Antitrust has always been the area in which legal and economic analysis are most closely integrated. Officina Economica, thanks to the important experience acquired by Partners in more than ten years of cooperation with Prof. Luigi Prosperetti, deals with all the central issues of competition economics, before the national Antitrust Authorities, the Administrative Court, and in civil proceedings. Case studies:
- Mergers and Acquisitions, with analysis of the related competitive effects and support to legal advisors in drafting commitments (Banca Intesa-San Paolo IMI, Banca Intesa-CariFirenze, Leroy Merlin- Castorama, F2i-Infracom, TIM-Vodafone-Inwit, Intesa San Paolo-UBI);
- Cartels, restrictive agreements and concerted practices (Acea, Comieco, BMW Bank, Ecobat, Exxon Mobil, Grandi Navi Veloci, Intesa San Paolo, Itron, Rivoira-Praxair, Veolia-Siram, Telecom Italia, TIM, Unilever, Vivisol, Airgreen);
- Abuse of dominant position (Glaxo, Merck, Telecom Italia, TIM, Nexive, Enel Produzione-Polo di Brindisi, Ticketone, ACEA, Husky);
- Opinions on antitrust compliance for specific commercial policies and for the use of privileged information (Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Corporation, Enel, ENI, TIM, Rolex, Nexive).
