Community Law, Competition and Regulation Community Law, Competition and Regulation

Competition law is a key legal area, in both Portuguese legal system and under Community law, for businesses and for the markets themselves, in view of the importance of mergers and acquisitions, antitrust violations, abuse of dominant position and other issues.

Regulatory law is an area of growing importance: as core sectors of the economy are opened up to private enterprise and the market, the State has taken on a regulatory role, working alongside new independent regulators to oversee business operators.
