Fair Market Competition
More choice, better quality and lower prices are what consumers want from their markets. Although the roots of competition legislation can be traced back to Roman legislation, this common law has evolved to reflect changing modern business conditions. As legislation is changing and as North Macedonia continues harmonizing its national legislation with that of the European Union, keeping up with new regulations and policies is onerous and complex, with potentially damaging consequences for your business. For foreign and domestic businesses that are looking to grow and expand, avoiding restrictive practices and competition infringements is imperative.
Apostolska Aleksandrovski & Partners can help you anticipate risks and solve problems before you face financial penalties, criminal proceedings and damage to your professional reputation. We offer legal advice and counselling in all aspects of EU and Macedonian law covering all aspects of commercial activity. Our team advises on the full range of competition matters, from mergers, joint ventures, abuse of dominance, restrictive practices, cartels, dawn raids and other investigations. Our team maintains professional relationships with the government agencies and authorities regulating competition law in the country and are therefore well placed to help you navigate your business through local legislation.
We are also experienced in advising foreign investors on state aid programmes and in providing practical advice on economic regulations and the commercial risks of daily business procedures.
