Global Competition Review

2016: "CMS’s Belgian competition practice is headed by Annabelle Lepièce, who has been at the firm since 1997 and is now assisted by three associates. The group advises companies in cartel and abuse of dominance investigations and is also known for its state aid work. The firm is working on Belgian retailer Delhaize Group’s European damage claim against MasterCard relating to interchange fees, is assisting the defence of retailer Mestdagh in an alleged hub-and-spoke cartel and acts for the complainants against Electrabel and Bpost in competition authority investigations. It also advised Lampiris in an intervention at the College of the BNA in a case accusing Electrabel of dominance. Other clients include Link2biz and SOGEPA."
