Legal Focus


55


competition law


Apple and Microsoft recently complained that Motorola was using legal injunctions against competitors’ best-selling products to help it ‘gain an edge in the market’. In response to this, and to offer clarity, the European Competition Commission launched an investigation into Motorola Mobility in order to determine if unfairly restricted the use of standard-essential patents by competitors.


offshore companies


Offshore companies are still proving to be an attractive option for businesses who want to make the most of attractive tax, financial and legal frameworks around the world. However, the ongoing global financial crisis has led to several recent legislative governmental attempts which aim to limit the bene- fits that are available.


Public Procurement


Following the difficulties European companies have been facing in the attempt to win public contracts overseas, the European Commission recently announced that it may look into the possibility of blocking non-EU firms from bidding for government projects, amid concerns that current legislation favours domestic firms.


In addition, this month’s Legal Focus takes a look at securities litigation and enforcement, dispute resolution in dubai, transfer pricing, franchise agreements and pharmaceutical patents.
