Christian Horstkotte - Baker McKenzie

Within: Antitrust

The five-partner group at Baker McKenzie covers the entire spectrum of German and international antitrust law and is particularly well-versed in antitrust proceedings. Alongside Anika Schürmann, who manages the interface with criminal law, Christian Horstkotte represents Carlsberg in objection proceedings before the Higher Regional Court of Düsseldorf against the fine notice of the Federal Cartel Office arising from the beer cartel. Merger control proceedings are another area of focus: Nicolas Kredel advised Knorr-Bremse on phase-II proceedings of the EU Commission concerning the acquisition of Swedish automotive supplier Haldex. Cartel damages matters are also increasingly prominent in the team’s workload; on the claimant side, the firm represents Eckes Granini in proceedings against parties involved in the sugar cartel, defendant work includes acting for Ideal Automotive against claims arising from the first automotive supplier cartel.

  • The New Turkish Code of Obligations: Important Changes for Leases of Residential & Business Premises

    For decades, the primary Turkish laws governing leases of residential and business premises have been the Law on Leasing Real Property dated May 27, 1955 (the “Lease Law”) and the Turkish Code of Obligations No. 818 dated April 22, 1926 (the “Obligations Code”). Both of these laws, however, will be repealed and replaced with the new Turkish Code of Obligations No. 6098 dated January 11, 2011 (the “New Obligations Code”), which will enter into force on July 7, 2012.
