Competition and distribution law

The Tunisian legislation provides restrictions on the exercise of trade by foreigners. Beyond this general constraint, a special legislation regulates the trade of distribution and its particular forms including franchise.The competition law and the commercial law are additional legal platforms to be considered in the context of trade and distribution activities.

We assist our clients in the study of the appropriate forms of distribution adapted to the investment strategy opted for. We help them in drafting various contracts with suppliers, distributors and sales agents.

Concentration can be horizontal, vertical or financial. It results particularly from a merger operation, an acquisition of a block of shares or a buyout.Governmental institutions rely on authorizations and sanctions mecanisms as provided by the Tunsian regulation of competition and prices to control concentration operations. We assist our clients to evaluate the risks of their different operations and to carry on procedures before specialized entities.
