Competition Law and State Aid.

Effective competition is the foundation of a free market economy. In this field, the goals and activities of the European Union and Estonia have led to the development of complex and comprehensive competition regulation, which is not always easy to follow through relevant case law and always requires professional advice. A knowledgeable, informed entrepreneur and a well-advised person are prerequisites for making good deals and preventing possible violations and disputes.

In order to revive the economy, various support measures have also been implemented, and individuals can apply for support from both national and EU-funded measures to promote their activities. Since there are no free lunches, the acceptance of state aid also requires the person to fulfil their obligations properly, which is a prerequisite for understanding the scope and content of the obligations. LINKLaw lawyers come to help in advance with professional advice.

  • preventing violations of competition law, including prohibited agreements, concerted action, consulting transactions, and other business-related activities;
