Are companies allowed to form a consortia in order to bid for the total contract, if each company would have been able to bid for part of the contract alone?
Wednesday 17 October from 8.30 to 10.00 (UTC +3)
We are delighted to invite you to Copenhagen Economics' Breakfast Club in Helsinki to discuss the recent ruling of the Danish Maritime and Commercial High Court on the question: Are companies allowed to form a consortia in order to bid for the total contract, if each company would have been able to bid for part of the contract alone?
In the consortia case, two Danish companies formed a consortium for submitting a joint bid for road markings in three regions. The Danish Competition Council and the Danish Competition Appeal Tribunal ruled against the consortium, stating the consortium being an infringement by object. These rulings were repealed by the Danish Maritime and Commercial High Court, arguing the consortium possibly being better for competition even if the two companies were able to bid independently for part of the contract.
The case is presented and discussed by Copenhagen Economics’ Partner Henrik Ballebye Okholm who attended the court proceedings as an expert witness to the case.
Breakfast will be served from 8.30 onwards with presentation staring at 9.00. Participation is free of charge but requires registration below as seats are limited.
