In recent years, the focus of both national competition authorities and the European Commission on vertical restraints - such as resale price maintenance - has increased significantly.
Our expert-team has considerable knowledge and years of experience in this field. This includes advising national and international companies in drafting licensing and distribution agreements and amending existing agreements to ensure continued compliance with competition regulations. It also includes assisting companies in investigations by the competition authorities.
We follow closely developments in the decision making practice and case law relating to vertical agreements and regularly publish articles on this topic. As a national expert, we contribute to Lexology's international guide Getting The Deal Through with a chapter on Vertical agreements in the Netherlands. This publication can be downloaded here.
