Nedelka Kubáč advokáti succeeds in terminating an investigation of the Slovak Banking Association


The Nedelka Kubáč advokáti law firm (NKA) succeeded in completely terminating administrative proceedings conducted by the Slovak Antimonopoly Office with respect to the Slovak Banking Association (SBA). The Antimonopoly Office suspected the SBA of two instances of anticompetitive conduct in connection with exchange of information with its members, one related to the self-regulation of association members and the other to providing observations and standpoints to drafts of legislation. In both cases, the Antimonopoly Office assessed significant questions by which it could have seriously influenced the further existence and functioning of associations in Slovakia. NKA initially succeeded in abolishing the first instance decision of the Slovak Antimonopoly Office against the SBA at the beginning of this year. Now, NKA achieved the full termination of the administrative proceedings with the SBA, since the Antimonopoly Office did not discover any breach of competition rules.
