Competition Law

SK&S’ Competition Law Department is led by Krzysztof Kanton.

  • We provide comprehensive advice to Polish and foreign clients on all aspects of Polish and EU antimonopoly law. We handle cases regarding competition-limiting practices, abuse of dominant positions, concentrations of enterprises, and abuses of consumer rights. We also advise in cases involving unfair commercial practices in the supply chain of foodstuffs.
  • Our team consists of eight lawyers who deal exclusively with cases involving competition law. Two members of the Department are former employees of the Competition Authority.
  • Number of our projects have been of a precedential nature, among others: filing the first ever leniency application in Poland, and obtaining a binding decision regarding a charge of price fixing. Moreover, we have taken part in developing definitions of relevant markets, which definitions have come to be established in the decision-making practice of the Competition Authority.
  • With regard to Polish and EU competition law, we regularly advise such companies as Mars, Microsoft, Górażdże Cement, Royal Canin, Jeronimo Martins Polska, Eurocash, Auchan, Selgros, Swiss Krono, Benefit Systems, Nike, Henkel, Agora Group, and many others.
