17.3.2017 – Legal Alert – Proposed Amendments to the Finnish Competition Act

By 03/17/2017News

The working group compiled by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment has submitted its report on the proposed amendments to the Finnish Competition Act.  The report is highly controversial as it includes several strongly dissenting opinions (from i.a. the Finnish Bar Association’s representative) regarding both the proposed changes and neglected areas/issues of improvement.  It will be interesting to see how these amendments evolve during the course of the commentary rounds which are set to be completed by mid-May.

We are closely following the drafting proceeding of the act. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the matter, please contact Matti.
