Civil Competition Enforcement
Where we form the view that competition law has been breached by way of:
- agreements that may have anti-competitive effects but are not considered to be
- hardcore cartels, or abuse of dominance in a sector of the economy
We can initiate legal proceedings to compel parties to stop their illegal activity. Such proceedings are generally brought in the civil court (the High Court). However, criminal proceedings may be appropriate depending on the circumstances of each case (see criminal court cases).
Often settlement terms are agreed in the High Court.
