- Monitoring economic concentrations. Notifying the CNMC (National Commission on Markets and Competition) and the European Commission (in the case of operations with an EU component).
- Defending sanctions proceedings brought by the Spanish or Community authorities in relation to cartels, abuse of dominant position and, in general, anti-competitive practices.
