COMPETITION LAW

Disputes between competitors with respect to the limits of fair behaviour are common in competition law.

The attorneys of our “Intellectual property” (IP) team provide advice on all matters regarding the various regulations that companies have to comply with when they compete with others on the market. For example, we offer advice prior to product launches and promotional and advertising campaigns in order to avoid unnecessary disputes and bad investments. Furthermore, we assist you with written warnings for anti-competitive behaviour and with the prosecution of offences committed by competitors of our commercial clients.
