Regulatory law, privatisation

Regulatory law

Regulatory law is an area of the law that creates an interface between commercial law, administrative law and antitrust law, which can be divided into different sectors. The objective of regulatory law is to regulate competition beyond general antitrust law and influence market structures. It is predominantly concerned with questions relating to infrastructure facilities and the fees charged for using them. Our practice group of highly specialised and experienced lawyers advises and represents clients in and on regulatory law.
