Unfair competition and indemnity actions “Private Enforcement”

When clients are faced with issues of defamation, imitation, disparagement or parasitic behaviours or any other unfair conduct, Magenta advises them in the relevant jurisdiction, in order to have their rights respected or defend their interests, obtaining compensation for damages where applicable.

Magenta is also particularly attentive to developments in private enforcement (transposition of Directive 2014/104, access to the competition authorities' files, introduction of class actions by the Hamon Law, etc.), and intervenes in many disputes of this type, working alongside firms of economists.

Magenta lawyers have successfully assisted many businesses that have been impacted by anti-competitive practices, obtaining compensation totalling almost €40 million.

Some of our recent assignments :

Advising and acting for several companies as plaintiff or defendant in private enforcement actions (claims between €5 million and €70 million).

Assisting in a commercial case, acting for a business accused by one of its competitors of parasitical business practices and misuse of rights.

Successfully acting in a commercial case for a company that had been the victim of unfair competition as a result of disorganisation, poaching of employees and enticement of customers.
