Stibbe represents a retail company on the validity of the sales period legislation in light of EU law

08.06.2009 BE law

Representing an upmarket department store company successfully in the highly- publicized proceedings before Belgium’s Supreme court (Hof van Cassatie/Cour de cassation) on the validity of national sales period legislation in light of EU law.

We helped the retail company obtain a declaration that Belgian consumer legislation on sales period advertisement restrictions did not conform to the European Unfair Trade Practices Directive. This case resulted in several public announcements issued by the Minister in charge of Economic Affairs. The ruling impacted Belgian trade practices law and the parliamentary review of trade practices regulation.
