Damage assessment for a breach of contract in the football audio-visual rights market

Lear has assisted a leading Italian telecom operator in claiming potential damages resulting from the anticipated resolution of a contract for the online distribution of football matches, and from discrimination in promotion efforts, as its counterpart – the exclusive rights holder, a web platform itself – decided to partner with the Italian telecom incumbent under exclusivity clauses in the football audio-visual rights market. Lear economists have been involved in the early-stage proceedings in ascertaining the extent of the discrimination that the telecom operator would be subjected to in the ultrabroadband market.
