Jürgen Beninca counsels European and U.S. corporate clients on antitrust regulatory compliance and represents businesses before cartel authorities — including the German Federal Cartel Office and the European Commission — and before courts in antitrust matters. Antitrust follow-on litigation cases constitute an important part of his practice. In addition to his antitrust practice, he assists clients in internal investigations and guides clients through the screening process of foreign direct investments into Germany under Germany’s Foreign Trade and Payments Ordinance (AWV). Jürgen’s experience includes winning merger control approvals from the German Federal Cartel Office and the European Commission in a variety of industrial sectors, including the automotive, banking, paper, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries. He also has been involved in various international, European, and national antitrust investigations in the banking, cement, automotive, insurance, and industrial minerals industries. His regulatory practice focuses on cartel and distribution cases and abuses of a dominant position. Jürgen’s litigation experience includes the representation of two U.S. financial institutions in approximately 300 different cases. He currently represents a client in the construction industry in an antitrust investigation by the German Federal Cartel Office, represents a sweets manufacturer in front of the German Federal Supreme Court in a case concerning the mere exchange of competitively sensitive information, and is pursuing an antitrust damage claim against the truck cartel on behalf of an industrial client. He also recently obtained a certificate of non-objection pursuant to Section 58 AWV for the acquisition of a German target by a Chinese client from the German government.
