Compass Lexecon Advises in Car Parking Heater Manufacturers Cartel Damages Litigation

In June 2015, the European Commission (“EC”) fined manufacturers of car parking heaters for infringing Article 101 TFEU by means of a price-fixing agreement.

Compass Lexecon provided economic assistance in the context of potential damages claims from automobile manufacturers. We provided an estimation of the overcharge: based on regression analysis, we compared the evolution of prices of projects included in and excluded from the cartel. The Compass Lexecon team included Christopher Milde and Mario Polus.
