Jurgen Beninca


Jürgen Beninca counsels European and U.S. corporate clients on antitrust regulatory compliance and represents businesses before cartel authorities — including the German Federal Cartel Office and the European Commission — and before courts in antitrust matters. In addition to his antitrust practice, he advises clients in commercial litigation and other disputes before German courts and assists clients in internal investigations. Antitrust follow-on litigation cases constitute an important part of his practice. Jürgen’s experience includes winning merger control approvals from the German Federal Cartel Office and the European Commission in a variety of industrial sectors, including the automotive, banking, paper, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries. He also has been involved in various international, European, and national antitrust investigations in the banking, cement, automotive, insurance, and industrial minerals industries. His regulatory practice focuses on cartel and distribution cases and abuses of a dominant position. Jürgen’s litigation experience includes the representation of two U.S. financial institutions in approximately 300 different cases, with 11 of the cases being heard by the German Federal Supreme Court. He currently represents a client in the construction industry in an antitrust investigation by the German Federal Cartel Office, represents a sweets manufacturer in front of the German Federal Supreme Court in a case concerning the mere exchange of competitively sensitive information, and is pursuing an antitrust damage claim against a cartel of sugar manufacturers. Jürgen published a book describing the concepts of antitrust law for business people and regularly writes articles on German and international antitrust and merger control law matters.
