Representing a leading Czech Republic mining company in abuse of dominance proceedings before the European Commission against the Czech electricity monopoly and one of the largest energy conglomerates in Europe.
On 10 April 2013, the European Commission adopted a commitment decision whereby the incumbent offers to sell one of a selection of power plants. In doing so, and with our client's agreement, the Commission has closed the 4-year-old abuse of dominance investigation. As a result of our client’s complaint, competition on the Czech electricity production market has increased significantly. In addition, we assisted our client afterwards in the purchase of the power plant that the Czech electricity monopoly was obliged to divest.
