In ESKARIAM we are specialists in claiming damages for those affected by anti-competitive agreements, abuses of dominant position and any other practice contrary to market regulations.
We act both in follow-on actions, in which the starting point is an administrative resolution (by the Spanish Markets and Competition Commission (CNMC) or the Directorate-General Competition (COMP)) or a judicial decision finding a collusive agreement before the claim for damages via civil proceedings and in stand-alone actions, initiating the claim without the prior declaration of unlawful conduct.
We always position ourselves on the side of those affected (consumers and companies) with the aim of claiming damages derived from the above-mentioned conduct infringing COMPETITION regulations.

ESKARIAM litigated in what is termed the Trucks Cartel to defend the interests of truck buyers who between 1997 and 2011 were negatively affected by the extra charges applied to sales prices by the manufacturers. ESKARIAM's expert cartel lawyers in cartels are already recovering the money of the aggrieved buyers who acquired a truck from the MAN, Volvo/Renault, Daimler, Iveco, DAF and Scania brands between 1997 and 2011.+ information
