EDF obtains full dismissal of antitrust complaint in France

Client(s) EDF (Electricité de France)

Jones Day secured the complete dismissal of a complaint brought against EDF (Electricité de France) by a French association of energy retailers, l'ANODE, before the French Competition Authority ("FCA"). L'ANODE alleged that EDF abused its dominant position by refusing to give competitors access to a portion of its client database. The FCA rejected that claim and also rejected the complainant’s request to impose interim measures on EDF.
