T.R.A.D.E. (Trade, Retail, Agency, Distribution, E-commerce)

Who we are

T.R.A.D.E. is an acronym standing for Trade, Retail, Agency, Distribution and E-commerce. Consequentially, our Commission addresses various topics related to national and international commercial law, with a particular focus on distribution channels, including franchising. Our members often have a complementary specialisation in related topics, such as IP/IT, litigation and arbitration, antitrust, consumer law, corporate law etc., and dedicate a large part of their activity to cross-border transactions.

The T.R.A.D.E. Commission encourages its members to be active and offers various levels of involvement to its new members to actively participate as speakers, event organisers or as authors of reports/papers etc.
