Antitrust Language Desk

Multilingual competency in antitrust law

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.

Resume check

Allow us perfect your resume!

(i) Background: The first impression matters. This is especially true for job application documents, particularly resumes. In addition to content, getting the presentation right is essential. Everything has to look professional, from start to finish. Yet many job applicants are not fully up to date in this area and submit documents that do not make the impact they could and should make.

(ii) Commitment: At AGON PARTNERS, we have the know-how and experience to make sure you present perfect job application documents. Don’t leave anything to chance! Allow us to fine tune your application documents and focus on format and content for maximum effect. This service is available at an attractive fixed price.

Job Search

Let us find the right job for you!

(i) Background: Antitrust experts, compliance specialists and paralegals don’t always find it easy to land the job that’s right for them. Job descriptions don’t always make it clear what the position involves, or the specific expertise and capabilities that are required.

(ii) Commitment: AGON PARTNERS has an extensive network of contacts across corporations, public authorities and academic institutions specializing in antitrust law and compliance. AGON PARTNERS is here to support you in your search for a new professional challenge that is the right fit for you. Feel free to contact us to set up a meeting where we can assess your skills and discuss your expectations and goals in detail. We can then leverage our existing network to find the position that will best meet your needs in the long-term.

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.

(iii) Contact: Patrick L. Krauskopf

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.
