KPMG’s Corporate Legal Advisory Services practice advises on Irish competition law, merger notification requirements and regulatory law. Advice on EU competition and mergers law and international competition law is facilitated by our access to international resources and professionals.
Competition law applies across the board to most business activities and can, for example, impact upon:
- Mergers and acquisitions activity
- Distribution agreements (in particular, to assignment of territories and resale pricing policy)
- Non-compete arrangements between businesses
- The market behaviour of a dominant market player
In brief, competition law is something that no business can afford to ignore, particularly given the possibility of infringing agreements being unenforceable and the potential imposition of fines, personal liability and imprisonment for directors of companies found in breach of the Irish competition rules.
