Stibbe acts as defence counsel for Heineken and its subsidiary Athenian Brewery in an action for damages brought by Vergina, a competitor on the Greek market, before the Amsterdam District Court.

This matter is important because it is the first large damage litigation in a case of (alleged) abuse of dominance in the Netherlands. It is also the first time a plaintiff relies on a decision issued by a foreign competition law authority before a Dutch court.

On 9 May 2018, the Amsterdam District Court rendered a favourable decision. It considers itself as the competent court for judging on any claims against the Dutch holding company, but not as competent court for judging on any claims against the Greek subsidiary.
