Dispute in the grocery retailing sector – ongoing

Lear is assisting a major Italian grocery retailer in the context of a damages action brought by one of its suppliers. The supplier is alleging that the decision of the grocery retailer to end its commercial relationship with the supplier amounts to an abuse of economic dependence. Lear has developed arguments and analyses aimed at showing that the relationship between the grocery retailer and its supplier did not represent an instance of economic dependence.
