Alleged abuse of dominance in the market for maritime freight transport

Lear assisted Moby and CIN, which is fully owned by Moby, in proceedings before the Italian Competition Authority (ICA). The ICA claimed that Moby/CIN was abusing its dominant position in the market for maritime freight transport to and from Sardinia, with the aim of foreclosing rivals. Lear’s analysis highlighted the weaknesses of the ICA’s approach to define the relevant product and geographic market and showed that there was no evidence of a foreclosing practice by Moby/CIN.
