Stibbe assists major European retailer on the largest cartel investigation ever in Belgium regarding perfume products

10.10.2013 BE law

Representing a major European retailer on the largest cartel investigation ever in Belgium regarding DPH products (drugstore, perfume, and hygienic products).

Six Belgian supermarkets and eleven manufacturers were accused of having made price agreements ("hub & spoke") for DPH products. The case was very important to our client considering the maximum fine that could be imposed on the supermarkets is 10% of their international annual turnover.  In this case, we were able to have the charges against our client dismissed.
