At GVJ Associates our team of competition lawyers offers comprehensive advice on all antitrust, procurement control, state aid and general European law issues, including infringement proceedings and administrative and judicial appeals before European and Spanish authorities and courts.
The CNMC is the government agency responsible for ensuring compliance with competition rules.
Monopolistic situations are closely observed by the CNMC, as they act as barriers to entry for potential new competitors and violate the principle of free competition.
It is essential to know the barriers to entry in a sector to avoid unforeseen events. Licensing requirements or the demands imposed by economies of scale are some of them. Barriers translate into high costs for market participants, which is why good planning is necessary. At GVJ Associates we advise you throughout the process.
