Our Competition & Antitrust Team regularly represents clients in investigations and litigation proceedings before the Competition Commission of India (CCI), the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT), various High Courts and the Supreme Court of India. We also advise and assist clients based in and outside India in merger filings before the CCI.
In the area of cartels, our team has experience in handling all aspects of cartel investigation and litigation. We have supported clients in defending cartel complaints, collation of information, representing before the regulator and preparation of leniency petitions. In addition to our expertise in Competition law, given our strong litigation practice, we also handle the fall-out of such investigations, including appeals and jurisdictional remedies before the NCLAT, High Courts and Supreme Court. Some of our clients have also taken our assistance in identifying and preparing complaints against potential cartel scenarios.
In the area of monopolies and dominant positions, our team has helped our clients in defending as well as initiating investigations before the CCI and were involved in filing some of the first few leniency applications before the CCI, preparing market analysis and review contracts and practices that have an impact on the effect on the relevant market. Our competition team also supports transactions by making combination filings and competition assessments.
