Dittmar & Indrenius > Services > Competition & Public Procurement

We focus on challenging assignments where experience matters, with an emphasis on transactional work, infringement proceedings and damages cases.

The lawyers of our practice are known for having been involved in all of the biggest competition cases in Finland – covering the infringement and/or the damages aspects, including e.g. several of the largest cartel cases and the largest ever abuse of dominance case. Furthermore, we have acted as counsel and as Finnish legal experts in some of the most notable international competition damages cases.

Our lawyers have been involved in many landmark cases which have been the first of their kind: They have, for example, submitted the first-ever leniency application in Finland, obtaining immunity from fines for the client; represented clients in the first-ever oral hearing of the Supreme Administrative Court in a competition case; and been lead counsel in precedent-setting competition damages cases – the first major cartel damages cases in which court rulings have been rendered.

We have also participated in the government’s legislative processes, e.g., in the government’s Expert Committee responsible for drafting the Finnish law implementing the EU directive on antitrust damages actions; and through our involvement in the Competition Law Expert Group of the Finnish Bar Association.

We have significant international experience in the practice as many of our lawyers have worked for top tier international law firms in Brussels, as well as for the Directorate-General for Competition of the European Commission in Brussels. Our lawyers have gained experience also from working with the Finnish Competition and Consumer Authority.

Our highly-ranked practice is one of the largest in Finland. Its cutting-edge expertise covers for example merger control and other transactional work, cartel investigations, legality of so-called horizontal and vertical agreements, abuses of dominance, dawn raids, litigation, competition damages cases, compliance programs and training, public procurement, and state aid.
