Praxis öffentlicher Stellen

As their states’ chief law enforcement officers AGs are enforcing state laws in wide-ranging areas including consumer protection, data privacy, antitrust, and environmental law, and they influence important state policies and laws affecting the high-technology, energy, and healthcare sectors. As their states’ chief legal advisors, AGs also challenge federal laws, regulations, and policies in order to defend their states’ right to govern themselves against federal overreach.

Kartellrecht - (Kartelle)

Cartel expertise Competition authorities worldwide are dialing up their anti-cartel efforts and heightening cross-border collaboration, with synchronized "dawn raids" mounted across jurisdictions. Companies can expect more of the same going forward – perhaps much more. Critical to risk management is an aggressive response that proactively addresses compliance alerts and other indications of anti-competitive conduct. Speed and agility can also mean the difference between amnesty or leniency and catastrophic sanctions. The choice of cartel counsel is thus a crucial decision point in protecting ...

by Marie-Laure Combet and Boris Marschall | March.26.2020

In a welcomed attempt to align their approaches, the antitrust enforcers of the European Competition Network (ECN)1 have published a brief joint statement on the application of competition law during the Covid-19 crisis.

by Patricia E. Anglin, William Berry and Yvonne Nyborg | March.27.2020

Employee Benefit Provisions in The Cares Act To confront the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress passed the CORNAVIRUS AID, RELIEF, AND ECONOMIC SECURITY ACT (CARES ACT) on March 27, 2020.

There are also provisions that defer employer payroll taxes, provide an employee retention tax credit for ...
