Swiss Federal Supreme Court affirms Ticketcorner's right to appeal ComCo's prohibition of its merger with Starticket
In its decision of June 24, 2019, the Swiss Federal Supreme Court fully approved Ticketcorner's appeal against the Federal Administrative Court's decision of May 3, 2018 and affirmed Ticketcorner's right to appeal ComCo's prohibition of its merger with Starticket. The Court held that Ticketcorner had an individual interest in appealing ComCo's prohibition without being obligated to lodge such appeal jointly with Tamedia, the parent company of Starticket and thus the other joint venture party of the prohibited merger.
Lenz & Staehelin represented Ticketcorner. The team was led by Marcel Meinhardt (partner) and included Astrid Waser (partner), Désirée Stebler (associate) and Sinem Süslü (associate), all Competition.
