Corporate Transactions: Let competition rule
Isolde Goggin, chairwoman of the Competition Authority.

The Competition Authority is the independent statutory body responsible for enforcing competition law and promoting competition in Ireland.

Its principal aims are to protect consumers from anti-competitive practices; for example cartels and abuses by dominant firms.

It is divided into six sections - cartels, monopolies, advocacy, mergers, strategy and corporate services. The consumer, including businesses as consumers, is at all times at the core of all the Competition Authority's activities in these areas.
