We assist clients with investigations by the Swiss Competition Commission in connection with cartels, vertical and horizontal cooperation as well as the abuse of a dominant position.

We also advise our clients on antitrust compliance programs and on their day-to-day business on issues such as distribution practices, co-operation agreements, intellectual property licensing, and pricing and marketing policies.
