Merger Control Enforcement in Spain: An Ongoing Saga of the Assessment of Behavioural Remedies

Jose Luis Azofra Parrondo and Carlos Bobillo, both of Garrigues discuss Merger Control Enforcement in Spain: An Ongoing Saga of the Assessment of Behavioural Remedies.

ABSTRACT: •Behavioural commitments are common in Spain—more than at the European level. •Attached to them is the complex issue of assessing whether and, if so, to what extent such commitments are complied with by parties. •On the basis of such an assessment, the failure to comply with merger-related commitments has been sanctioned in Spain—and in the case discussed here, the several fines, totalling €22,600,000, were imposed by the Spanish competition authority in the context of a single merger.
