Over and above our core competency in antitrust law, AGON PARTNERS is a trusted partner in economic and scientific circles in the field of “near-competition”.

Antitrust Language Desk

Multilingual competency in antitrust law

(i) Background: AGON PARTNERS advises and represents clients from all over the world. This makes it imperative to remove all potential language barriers. Competition law documents have to be made available in different languages and must be of the highest quality.

(ii) Commitment: The Antitrust Language Desk at AGON PARTNERS delivers multilingual client services. Competition law documents such as corporate statements, opinions, leniency applications or merger filings are drawn up in German, English, French and Spanish according to the highest standards of quality.

Antitrust translation service

Translations of the highest quality

(i) Background: When it comes to mergers or investigative proceedings initiated by the competition commission or the courts, linguistic excellence is a major challenge for all companies. If documents, information and data are not translated with absolute precision, misunderstandings and disadvantages for the parties may follow.

(ii) Commitment: Thanks to the professional support from the Antitrust Language Desk, AGON PARTNERS is a specialist for the translation of multilingual legal documents. Contracts, corporate statements, opinions, leniency applications or merger filings are prepared with skill and accuracy, staying faithful to the text while conveying the spirit of the original, in German, English, French and Spanish.

Funding Lawsuits

Advisory services for funding antitrust lawsuits

(i) Background: Civil antitrust law complaints often fail simply because organizations are unable to cover the costs of ongoing litigation and legal representation.

(ii) Commitment: AGON PARTNERS counsels and supports your company with a view to third-party financing of antitrust proceedings.

Talent awards

Promotion of academic work

(i) Background: Students of Swiss universities regularly deliver the highest academic performances. Regrettably, the bachelor and master theses often simply end up in a drawer somewhere.

(ii) Commitment: AGON PARTNERS supports the yearly award, presented by the Swiss Association for Compliance and Competition Law (ACCL), for the best bachelor and the best master thesis from a Swiss university.

TotalCar(e)

The all-round carefree package for garage owners

(i) Background: Swiss companies in the car industry, especially garage owners and system service providers, are often in a dependent relationship with manufacturers and importers. However, due to a lack of resources, they are often unable to effectively defend themselves against abusive practices by manufacturers and importers.

(ii) Commitment: AGON PARTNERS offers high quality services for garages at a minimum price. The basic package includes, among other things, a newsletter which highlights current developments and court judgments, gives you information about contracts with dealers and workshops, includes taking a look at any documentation you may have - as well as giving you recommendations about negotiation and the best way forward. The premium package also includes legal correspondence and attractive offers to help you with compliance checks and legal representation.
