Supreme Court finds that The Swedish Competition Authority wrongly denied Söderberg & Partners the right to judicial review

In an ongoing investigation with the Swedish Competition Authority, disagreement arose as to which documents the Swedish Competition Authority was entitled to copy. Söderberg & Partners, represented by Mannheimer Swartling, has insisted on a right to judicial review in case of such disagreement, i.e. concerning which documents the Swedish Competition Authority is entitled to copy. The Supreme Court now establishes that the Swedish Competition Authority was wrong to act in a way which denied Söderberg & Partners that right. The Supreme Court also finds that Söderberg & Partners is entitled to damages as a result of the wrongdoing. As a consequence, the Swedish Competition Authority has changed its procedures relating to the copying of documents during investigations.
