Francis Bellen and Tilman Siebert have recently published an article in Deutscher Anwaltsspiegel on the upcoming 9th amendment to the German Competition Act which is going to make Germany an even more attractive place for bringing cartel damages claims. The article discusses the changes that strengthen the claimants‘ position as well as the missed opportunities to clarify the situation concerning collective damages actions. Furthermore, it addresses other outstanding questions not solved by the amendment.
The article is available here (in German). For further information please contact our
