Competition and distribution

Since its creation, APG has been involved in sensitive issues in competition and distribution law. Our team, comprised of experts from French and European law, serves a leading clientele (automobile groups, banking and insurance companies, retail, media, energy, etc.).

We advise companies on organizing and securing networks, concentrating, grouping national or international companies, trade negotiations, and so-called “restrictive” practices. We also accompany our clients when dealing with their regulatory authorities, as well as in their discussions with French and European authorities.

APG has always made significant contributions to developments in French and European law and case law. The firm is at the origin of major developments, particularly in the area of the free movement of goods, companies, and services or comparative advertising.

Our activity frequently leads us to work on new issues, such as creating marketplaces, advising operators on changing markets (new economy, new participants in regulated sectors), or coordinating national policies and European law.
