Alleged cartel in the market of corrugated cardboard sheets and boxes

Lear’s economists assisted one of leading companies in the market of corrugated cardboard sheets and boxes in proceedings before the Italian Competition Authority (ICA) for alleged price fixing conducts. Lear developed an analysis aimed at demonstrating that the evidence presented by the ICA was not sufficient to prove the effects of the investigated conducts on prices. Lear has demonstrated that the market has witnessed a strong consolidation process, that has been disregarded by ICA in its analyses, and that the alleged effects described by the ICA may be instead attributed to such process
