As a result, she has an excellent overview and understanding of the most up-to-date competition law related issues and corresponding procedural practice. Piibe advises clients on competition law related issues in a wide variety of business areas from the food industry to the energy sector. The most common issues on which Piibe helps to find competition law compliant solutions relate to selective distribution systems, information exchange between competitors, pricing practices of dominant undertakings, supply agreements and other vertical cooperation.
