Challenging the legality of the network Demeco, two operators of the sector had entered the competition Authority in may 2014, supporting :
on the one hand, that the contract of partnership Demeco contained several restrictions of competition (resale price maintenance, exclusive of excessive length, membership criteria are discriminatory), and would support an anti-competitive agreement ; and
on the other hand, that the Group Nasse Demeco would have committed an abuse of a dominant position by attempting to oppose the resumption of a partnership contract Demeco a former member by a new business must play a clause of intuitu personae.
In its decision of 15 may 2017, the competition Authority has retained the whole of the arguments of the defence, considering that the clauses of the contract of partnership did not object and anticompetitive effect, and that Demeco did not hold a dominant position on the markets for the move.

The Authority has therefore given a non-place and has completely bleached the Group Nasse Demeco.

The Group Nasse Demeco was advised by Baker McKenzie in Paris with a team of Lena Sersiron, Associated, Elodie Massin, Counsel, and Thomas Guerin, a Senior Associate.
