Dear BASEL member companies,
Dear BASEL partners,
Dear ladies and gentlemen,

 


Business is in constant competition, with everyone trying to stay ahead of their competitors. But what is the cost of this advantage and are businesses aware of where the line is between competitive behavior and unfair competition?

Law firm Dimitrov, Petrov & Co. (DPC), together with the French-Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Bulgarian-Swiss Chamber of Commerce, and Advantage Austria, invites you to a working breakfast focused on some of the most common unfair commercial practices.

  • Effective strategies against unfair competition and building sustainable business models.
