Unfair competition

Freedom of competition, trade and industry are necessary and obvious principles of commercial relations.

However, these freedoms do not allow companies to use methods which are contrary to fair trade practices, constitute intentional or unintentional fault, or cause harm.

The law likewise penalises, and classes as parasitism, any behaviour whereby an economic agent rides the coattails of another in order to profit by their efforts and know-how without spending any money

Unfair competition or parasitism actions are often complementary to infringement actions.

Our experts develop strategies that combine action against infringement, unfair competition and parasitism in order to give your business effective protection from your competitors.
