Competition Law / Antitrust

 

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. In addition, we represent clients in merger control filings with the Swiss Competition Commission and coordinate multijurisdictional merger control filings.

 

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.
