In addition to pure antitrust law, AGON PARTNERS is a competent partner to the economic and scientific spheres in the field of near-competition.

Antitrust Language Desk

Multilingual antitrust law skills

(i) Background: AGON PARTNERS advises and represents clients from all over the world. It is therefore imperative that language does not pose an obstacle. Antitrust law documents have to be made available in different languages and must be of the highest quality.

(ii) Commitment: The Antitrust Language Desk within AGON PARTNERS offers a multilingual client service: Antitrust law documents such as corporate statements, opinions, leniency applications or merger filings are composed to the highest degree possible in German, English, French and Spanish.

Antitrust Translation Service

Translations of the highest quality

(i) Background: When it comes to mergers or investigation proceedings which have been instigated by the Competition Commission or by the courts, the use of different languages poses great challenges for companies. Where documents, information and data are not precisely translated, then misunderstandings may occur. This can lead to misunderstandings and disadvantages.

(ii) Commitment: Thanks to the support from the Antitrust Language Desk, AGON PARTNERS has become specialized in the translation of legal documents. Contracts, corporate statements, opinions, leniency applications or merger filings are prepared in a proficient, precise and accurate manner, staying both faithful to the text while conveying the spirit of the original, in French, German, Spanish and English.

CV Check

Allow us perfect your CV!

(i) Background: The first impression counts. This is especially the case for job application documents, including in particular CVs. In addition to content, getting the presentation right is also essential. Everything has to look right, from start to finish. However, many applicants are not up to scratch on this score and send in documents that are much less convincing than they could be.

(ii) Commitment: AGON PARTNERS has the know-how and experience to be able to optimise your job application documents. Don’t leave anything to chance! Allow us to go through your application documents with a fine toothcomb, focusing on both form and content. This service is available at an attractive fixed price.

Headhunting

You look - we find!

(ii) Commitment: AGON PARTNERS has excellent contacts with both talented young persons and experienced professionals in the area of competition and anti-trust law. AGON PARTNERS is here to support businesses in making long-term appointments of suitable specialists to any vacancies that may arise. Candidates are thoroughly vetted, in terms of both their technical expertise and personal aptitude.

Job Search

We find the right job for you!

(i) Background: Anti-trust experts, compliance specialists and paralegals don’t always find it easy to land the right job. Job descriptions don’t always make it clear what exactly the position involves, as well as the specific expertise and capabilities that are required.


(ii) Commitment: AGON PARTNERS has excellent contacts with businesses, authorities and academies specialising in anti-trust law and compliance. AGON PARTNERS is here to support you in finding the right new professional challenge for you. Please get in touch with us to arrange a personal discussion so that we can assess your skills and ambitions holistically. On this basis we can then draw on our established network in order to find the right long-term position for you.

Lawsuit funding

Advising on funding in antitrust law suits

(iii) Contact: Patrick L. Krauskopf

Talent awards

Promotion of academic work
