ABSTRACT
The article reports that White & Case LLP's Brussels based partner Ian Forrester QC is advising pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline in a case which featured a unique decision by the European Court of Justice (ECJ). The ECJ decided that the Greek Competition Commission had no jurisdiction to refer questions to it, as the competition authority does not have the necessary characteristics of a court. Glaxo is embroiled in litigation in Greece which was on hold until the ECJ's decision. Wholesalers and Greek pharmaceutical associations complained to the competition authority after Glaxo stopped supplying them with its products.
