less than a minute read


On November 17, 2011 the European Commission announced it was closing an Article 102 investigation into the CUSIP Service Bureau operated by Standard and Poor’s. The Commission had investigated complaints that the CUSIP Service Bureau was charging excessive prices and closed the case following commitments from Standard and Poor’s regarding its future pricing. A joint Compass Lexecon and FTI Consulting team of Jorge Padilla, Justin Coombs, Danny Ryan, Navin Waghe, David Shaharudin, and Patrick Coen advised Standard and Poor’s and its lawyers Alex Nourry, Simon Deeble, and others at Clifford Chance LLP.
