The Geneva-based competition practice at MEYERLUSTENBERGER LACHENAL is led by Christophe Rapin. He works with newly promoted partner Christophe Pétermann, who spends half his time in Brussels, and Martin Ammann, a partner with 24 years of Swiss and EU competition law experience, who is due to retire in 2017. Most of the firm’s work, including its representation of financial institutions under investigation, is confidential; half of its business focuses on preventative compliance. Rapin represented SAS Cargo in COMCO’s air cargo investigation and is also advising Felco, Vilegrequin and Calida on competition issues relating to their distribution networks. He says working in the Lausanne area of Switzerland places the firm well to advise high-tech start-ups also located in the area, once such companies mature and begin to develop competition concerns.
