The Competition law team was instructed to represent an enterprise in a litigation proceeding before the Competition Authorities:
- review of the writ of claims and the report drafted by the Competition Investigator in charge of handling the brief;
- drafting of the written submissions in response;
- hearing before the Council of the Competition Authorities.
The Authorities deemed that the conditions for prohibition on the grounds of anti-competitive collusion and price fixing were lacking and therefore dropped all charges held against this agricultural enterprise.
Three other enterprises were condemned in the same affair and accused of price fixing linked to the exorbitant rise in the price of raw materials.
