Lawyers Defend Top 5 Global Pharmaceutical Company Before AMCU in Price Fixing Case

  • Antitrust & Competition

Marchenko Danevych has successfully defended a group trading subsidiary of one of the Top 5 Global pharmaceutical companies (Global 500 company) in the investigation and competition case conducted by the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine. This case concerned alleged anticompetitive pricing restraints (anticompetitive concerted actions) in contractual relations between the Client and its local wholesale distributors.

We convinced the Committee, through an elaborate analysis of wholesale and retail pricing data, that the pricing arrangements, including post-sale discounts, between the Client and its local wholesale distributors had no anticompetitive effect on the Ukrainian retail market. As a result, the Committee imposed only nominal penalties.
