Competition

At Froriep our competition team advises both corporations and public entities on all aspects of competition law. We have gained a first-class reputation for our business-minded approach, efficiency and teamwork, and offer a deep specialisation in this area.

The main focus of our competition law practice is representing our clients as lead or local counsels before competition authorities, civil courts and arbitral tribunals. Our team members are in frequent contact with the Swiss Competition Commission and its Secretariat, and are well placed to help guide a client through the often traumatic process of an investigation.

We also advise clients in the structuring of joint ventures and distribution arrangements, on the implications of market dominance and regulated markets and on the requirements of national and international merger control. We also help to establish compliance programmes and conduct training sessions for clients.

Our team members are active in international conferences and seminars. We follow the trends in our clients’ industries closely so that we can anticipate developments and help them to avoid competitive risks in the future.
