The automotive industry is a strong driving force in Swedish and international business and the industry is constantly changing. Industry participants want to increase efficiency and reduce costs while maintaining safety and increasing their focus on the environment and alternative fuels. This trend continually imposes new requirements on the conditions for cooperation.
For decades, MAQS has been an integral advisor in the relationship between vehicle manufacturers and dealers. We provide continual assistance in the form of drafting, reviewing, and negotiating agreements for both automobile manufacturers and suppliers to the automotive industry. We represent both sellers and buyers in product and service issues associated with the industry.
By virtue of representing the majority of the global market participants, MAQS has industry-leading experience in planning and implementing structures for dealer networks and aftermarket service and spare parts. In addition, we ensure that the structures comply with complex EU legal and competition regulations. We provide support in development cooperation within the industry by assisting with the establishment of joint venture companies or negotiating individual cooperation agreements (in which IP issues are a crucial component). MAQS also assists clients with e-trading sales of automotive products.
