Vogel & Vogel is a specialised full-service antitrust firm led by Louis Vogel and Joseph Vogel which represents an enviable client roster spanning a vast array of industry sectors. In the telecoms sector, the team recently obtained a significant award for Digicel in a private enforcement claim against Orange after the latter was fined for abuse of dominant position, and TF1 appointed the group to handle the repercussions of a complaint lodged by Canal+ regarding the presence of pre-emptive rights clauses in film co-production contracts concluded by several broadcasters. The practice's recent caseload also includes European state aid matters and mandates revolving around questions of selective distribution networks and third-party platforms. Other key contacts include Laurence Boudailliez, who is currently acting for Geodis and SNCF in their appeal against the FCA's decision to fine them on the grounds of cartel practices; Juliette Blouet, who has significant expertise in the telecoms sector; and Cécile Assémat.
