Spain. Law & Practice (Antitrust Litigation 2023)
Spain has recently become a leading jurisdiction in antitrust litigation, with a number of judgments issued in cartel damages claims in the last three to four years. In previous years, however, Spain had some experience with nullity claims and damages claims resulting from distribution agreements with vertical restraints. The situation has drastically changed, and Spain is currently a very attractive jurisdiction for damages claims, with thousands of claimants and proceedings concerning cartel cases and abuse of dominant positions.
