Gecić Law Contributes the First-Ever Serbia Chapter on Cartels & Leniency to The International Comparative Legal Guide

We are very pleased to announce that Gecić Law contributed the first-ever Serbia chapter for The International Comparative Legal Guides to Cartels & Leniency.  The publication comes at a defining moment in terms of antitrust enforcement in Serbia as the Commission for Protection of Competition (the “Competition Commission”) conducted a number of dawn raids in two ongoing investigations in 2015.  This was the first time the Competition Commission invoked such investigative powers since it was established in 2006.  We have already published a short guide on dawn raids, available here, in the light of the aforementioned developments, and a standalone piece on the most recent raid conducted on December 1, 2015, available here.  Cartels & Leniency publication applies a question and answer interview format, and covers various aspects of competition law including: legislative framework, Competition Commission’s investigative powers, sanction regimes, whistle-blowing & leniency procedures, appeals, damage actions, criminal enforcement and others.

The International Comparative Legal Guides to: Cartels & Leniency is published by the Global Legal Group (GLG), an independent, London-based media company specializing in the legal market.  The series provides current and practical comparative legal information on a range of practice areas.  Each guide draws together the collective expertise of contributors from respective markets to provide a valuable and convenient resource that is updated annually. The list of contributors to the 2016 edition of The International Comparative Legal Guide to: Cartels & Leniency, besides Gecić Law, includes a number of leading international law firms, such as DLA Piper and King & Wood Mallesons.

The authors of the chapter, Bogdan Gecić and Marija Papić, would like to use this opportunity to acknowledge Zoran Sretić, for his helpful comments and contributions and  Jelena Adamović, for her suggestions and support in the preparation of this chapter.
