Avellum has successfully defended the interests of PJSC A/T B.A.T.-Prilucky Tobacco Company — the Ukrainian subsidiary of British American Tobacco — in a dispute against the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine. The case was brought before the Northern Commercial Court of Appeal in Kyiv.

According to Avellum, the dispute revolved around the committee’s decision to impose UAH 448 million fine on BAT for its alleged anti-competitive concerted actions aimed at “restriction of access of undertakings (buyers) to the market of primary sale of cigarettes by manufacturers.”

Avellum reported that the Northern Commercial Court of Appeal fully upheld BAT's appeal and revoked the AMC’s decision.

Avellum’s team included Senior Partner Kostiantyn Likarchuk, Counsels Mykyta Nota, Lyudmyla Volkova, and Andriy Fortunenko, and Associates Valeriia Lepska and Andrii Kuleba.
