Oppenländer is a medium-sized German firm providing high-end legal advice. The firm is perhaps best known for its constantly high-rated competition practise. The competition team of seven partners at Oppenländer has acquired a strong reputation across the board of competition law matters – ranging from German and EU merger control across dominance matters to German and EU cartel cases as well as public procurement matters. Oppenländer has particular expertise in private competition litigation. Starting with the landmark case for bundled claims in Germany against the cement cartel, Oppenländer has brought numerous claims in follow-on cases for both, large corporations and medium-sized firms. We believe no other German law firm to date has handled more court cases for plaintiffs in private competition litigation. Relying on teams including seasoned litigators, Oppenländer is familiar with the particularities of all relevant antitrust courts in Germany. Like most German competition practises, Oppenländer, however, is not restricted to plaintiff work. The firm has successfully handled private damage claims on the defence side as well. Apart from competition law, Oppenländer offers particular expertise and specialist advice in corporate, intellectual property and regulatory matters, including energy, pharmaceuticals and life sciences.
