The initial point of this study is a review of the tendency – in the EU as well as in Switzerland – as to the number of fines imposed by the European and the Swiss Competition Commission for competition law infringements in their jurisdictions, which have not only been subjected to an outstanding increase over the last years but have also reached an exceptionally high level over the last decade.
For this reason, this LL.M. Dissertation examines the deficiencies inherent in both, Swiss and EU Competition law, mainly in the context of the procedures for the imposition of fines for infringements of these two respective regimes.
One of the key findings to emerge from this work is that Swiss Competition law is fairer than EU law in dealing with undertakings accused of anti-competitive behaviour. Notwithstanding this Swiss fairness, however, the author identifies a number of circumstances in which both regimes allegedly contravene the provisions of the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.
