Negotiating Follow-on Cartel Damages Claims - McDermott

Düsseldorf Competition Law Panel: Negotiating Follow-on Cartel Damages Claims


Follow-on cartel damages claims raise difficult legal and evidentiary questions that lead to long drawn-out court proceedings and a high degree of uncertainty for all parties involved. Often long term supply and customer relationships are affected.
