Baker & McKenzie Represents Mitsubishi Electric in Landmark EU Court Appeal

Deal Announcement
13 July 2011
London, UK / Brussels, Belgium, 13 July 2011 – Baker & McKenzie has represented Mitsubishi Electric before the European Union's General Court in Luxembourg in an appeal to  overturn fines of EUR118.58 million. In a judgment handed down  on 12 July 2011, the European General Court has annulled in its entirety a fine imposed on Mitsubishi Electric in respect of a cartel investigation into gas insulated switchgear.

In January 2007, the European Commission imposed a fine on Mitsubishi Electric for an alleged infringement of EU competition  law  in the supply of gas insulated switchgear from 1988 to 2004. Baker & McKenzie represented Mitsubishi Electric in appealing the decision in April 2007 on numerous grounds including significant errors in the calculation of the fine.  The General Court's judgment of 12 July annulled the fine on the basis that the Commission had infringed the principle of equal treatment  in calculating the fine.
The Baker & McKenzie team was led by London EU, Competition & Trade Partner Ross Denton and included Brussels EU & Competition Partner Kurt Haegeman, Brussels Counsel Joost Haans, and London Associates Jaishree Vyavaharkar, James Robinson and Mayuko Roald.
