Denmark: Overview

Danish competition law is based on EU competition law, and to a large extent the Danish rules are similar to the EU rules. The objective of this article is to give an introduction to Danish competition law, including the rules on state aid. The focus will be on areas of the law where the Danish rules differ from the EU rules, as well as recent developments in Denmark. The Danish rules on merger control are described in Global Competition Review’s Getting The Deal Through – Merger Control.
