Competition and distribution law


Energy suppliers face growing competitive pressure and increased competition in the field of energy distribution.

More and more small and mid-sized energy suppliers are thus choosing a structured approach to obtaining the energy required to supply customers. The contracts to be signed in this respect frequently involve significant risks that can only be assessed by a thorough legal and commercial review.

On the sales side, the successful distribution of energy, from product design to marketing, requires compliance with numerous different provisions, in particular in the areas of fair trading law, trademark law, media law as well as the law on general terms of business with due regard to the specific requirements of energy legislation.

Last but not least, the increasing number of court proceedings and warning letters in this area shows how important the legal certainty of energy distribution has become in practice.
