Welcome to AGON PARTNERS. We are a law firm specializing in antitrust and competition law.

About us

AGON Partners is a law firm specializing in antitrust and competition law.

Antitrust proceedings are not simply legal disputes, but also pose profound challenges for businesses that go beyond the scope of purely legal issues. Antitrust litigation not only generates legal challenges, but can also make specific measures in the area of corporate communication absolutely essential, and – in the case of an impending threat of antitrust litigation – in the area of economic policy. AGON Partners offers a wide array of essential in-house services to anticipate, assess, and overcome these various challenges. In addition to their expertise, our experienced specialists can also draw on an international network of senior managers in regulatory agencies, as well as long-term experience in developing and executing effective procedural strategies. We continuously monitor and analyze existing legislative and legal developments. We are actively involved in shaping the academic discourse on the application and development of Swiss antitrust law via our white papers and presentations. On an ongoing basis, we provide our clients with the latest insights and also maintain a presence in the academic world, sharing our knowledge with the coming generation of antitrust attorneys.

Our history

The founding of AGON PARTNERS had its origins in a shared idea, developed by the founding partners and refined over many years of successful collaboration:
