Our team of experts are able to offer expert competition law advice, provided in a clear and concise manner and in the context of assisting you in achieving your commercial goals.
It is essential that your commercial agreements comply with competition law. At the same time, you need to ensure that your interests are properly protected; which can be a fine balancing act.
If you are bringing a product to market, then we can assist you not only on your individual distribution agreements, but also on your whole distribution strategy. Is your distribution model suitable for what you want to achieve and for dealing with the threats you face? These are questions that go to the heart of protecting your business. The nuances of competition law mean that you may be able to better address your concerns by using a particular type of distribution model. We believe that something as fundamental as this is worth exploring and that our clients should be aware of their options.
In addition to distribution agreements, networks and strategies, we are also able to advise on all other aspects of competition law, including:
- Technology license agreements – including ensuring compliance with the Technology Transfer Regulations.
- The internet – including your policy towards internet traders.
- Pricing policies.
- Abuse of a dominant position – including issues concerning exclusivity, tying, foreclosure and refusals to supply.
- Research and development agreements.
- Cartel activity.
- Joint ventures
