Jones Day’s series on private enforcement actions relating to antitrust matters in Europe turns to significant developments in Spain. Raimundo Ortega and Antonio Canales explain why antitrust actions in Spain have increased, discuss how damages are disputed and quantified, and review the key takeaways from the high-profile Truck Cartel and Paper Envelope Cartel matters.
Private enforcement actions relating to antitrust matters has increased dramatically across Europe in recent years, both as follow-on damages claims in reaction to governmental enforcement actions, or as standalone competition claims pursued in litigation and arbitration by private parties. Jones Day partners Jürgen Beninca and Nicholas Cotter discuss what is behind the escalation in cases, including the effects of the European Union’s 2014 Damages Directive.
