Decision passed in "processed meat cartel" case


26 June 2017

Allen & Overy achieves a closing of the files, the FCO revoking a fine decision against Bell Germany  

On Friday, the German Federal Cartel Office (FCO) terminated the case brought against Bell Deutschland Holding relating to an alleged "processed meat cartel". The fine of close to EUR 100 million imposed in July 2014 has been revoked. Bell Food Group successfully defended its position that the company never carried liability for any infringement.

In this investigation, Bell Food Group was represented by Allen & Overy partner Dr. Ellen Braun and counsel Dr. René Galle. The Allen & Overy team worked closely with criminal defense attorney Dr. Kai Hart-Hönig, Frankfurt, who joined the defense team for the appeal proceedings.
