Dr. Tatjana

Dr. Tatjana Mühlbach, a partner at BUNTSCHECK since 2016, draws on more than a decade’s experience in advising German and international clients in matters of German and EU competition law. She is equally well-versed in merger control, cartel damages claims, abuse-of-dominance and cartel procedures, compliance, and the competition-law considerations in day-to-day commercial dealings.

Tatjana has developed in-depth expertise over many years in supporting clients from start to finish in merger-control transactions, including strategically complex “Phase Two” procedures. In the area of cartel damages claims, she has represented clients from Germany and other countries in notable cases, both in court and out of court. Companies from the pharmaceuticals and healthcare sectors are regular beneficiaries of Tatjana’s professional insights into healthcare competition law.

Her expertise in competition law has earned her recommendations from guides such as Wirtschaftswoche and Best Lawyers.

Tatjana has professional proficiency in the languages of German and English.

Mestmäcker, and at the University of Bordeaux (France). Doctor of Laws 2006. From 2007 to 2015, she was employed at SJ Berwin LLP and Milbank LLP.
