Dispute in the cement and concrete markets

Lear is assisting a major producer of cement and concrete in damages claims brought by upstream and downstream clients. The action follows an investigation by the Italian Competition Authority which had found that companies in the market for cement had coordinated their pricing behaviour. Lear’s economists are developing analyses seeking to show that the practice did not result in an overcharge in any of the steps of the supply chain.
