Alleged cartel in the insurance market

Lear advised a major insurance company involved in a cartel investigation by the Italian Competition Authority. Lear’s analysis focused on highlighting the weaknesses of the ICA’s approach to the case, and provided evidence that the companies’ behaviour was the result of autonomous and economically rational strategies pursued by the companies. The Administrative Tribunal of Lazio overturned the Italian Competition Authority decision and annulled fines to Lear’s client. The decision by the Administrative Tribunal of Lazio was upheld by the Consiglio di Stato and became final.
