Global Maritime Car Carriers: Assistance in relation to global cartel investigation
We are assisting Höegh Autoliners AS in the so-called Maritime Car Carrier case, which is a global cartel investigation involving, amongst others, Europe (European Commission), USA (Department of Justice), Japan, Korea and China. The case is one of the largest pending cartel cases worldwide. Grette is advising on EU law and on global coordination within public and private enforcement.
Grette assists clients in cartel matters in Norway, at the European level and in global cases. Our assistance will, depending on the case, take the form of assistance with complaints, or assistance to companies that are under investigation or to companies wishing to file an exemption application with the competition authorities. We also assist with preventive work through the development of compliance programmes and training modules.
