Deutsche Bahn AG settles with Swiss Competition CommissionShortly after the settlement of ifpi Schweiz and Phononet AG, in which Lenz & Staehelin advised Phononet AG, the Swiss Competition Commission signalled that it is willing to continue settlements also in cartel cases. Five international freight forwarders cut a long investigation short that lasted already more than 5 years in settling with the Swiss authority. The settlement also covered the air freight activities in the years 2003 and 2007 of Deutsche Bahn AG's Swiss subsidiary, Schenker Schweiz AG. Lenz & Staehelin advised Deutsche Bahn AG in this proceeding. The team consisted of Marcel Meinhardt (lead partner), Astrid Waser, Nicolas Bonassi and Mario Strebel.
