Companies whose suppliers have been found guilty of price fixing, market sharing, bid rigging or refusing to supply may be entitled to considerable compensation.
However, businesses damaged by cartels are often dissuaded from pursuing potential claims by the complexity of assessing damages and enforcing their claims, possibly facing years in court. In addition, ongoing business relationships with existing suppliers may effectively deter companies from claiming compensation.
