NKO has successfully represented Konica Minolta before the Administrative Court of Serbia in a dispute with the Serbian Competition Authority over a fine imposed for allegedly entering into restrictive agreements.
After achieving a favorable result in appeal proceedings back in 2020 (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on June 29, 2020), NKO saw the competition law case once more reviewed by the Serbian Competition Commission, which again found Konica Minolta guilty of allegedly entering into restrictive agreements.
According to the firm, the matter was referred to the Administrative Court of Serbia and, again, the court annulled the fine previously imposed on Konica Minolta by the Serbian Competition Commission.
"The Administrative Court found that the Serbian competition watchdog failed to substantiate its case. As a result, the court has referred the case back to the Commission for reconsideration," NKO reported.
The NKO team was led by Partner Djuro Otasevic.
