Copenhagen Economics has interviewed the legal and economist teams of the Competition Council of the Republic of Lithuania (LCC) and four prominent competition law practitioners for the chapter on Lithuania.
During the past year, the ECN+ Directive was written into Lithuanian law, entering into effect on 1 October 2020. The research conducted by Copenhagen Economics also revealed that, despite the Coronavirus crisis having a negative effect on the number of merger filings, the trends of increased use of economic analysis in merger cases continues. Abuse of dominance cases and follow-on damage claims are very rare, however some lawyers interviewed suggested that a lack of robust infringement decisions adopted by the LCC is one of the main reasons for this.
