The pesticide cartel operating from 1998-2015 affected the pesticide market prices enormously and left many businesses overpaying and therefore, entitled to damages.

The assertion of antitrust claims requires a high level of economic and a high level of legal expertise in competition law and financial power.

This is what we provide.

A damaged farmer who participates in the collective action does not have to pay any costs in any case. LitFin only receives a commission in case of success.

WHAT
HAPPENED

In spring 2020, the German Federal Competition Authority (BWB) imposed fines totaling around 157 million Euros on at least 8 major wholesalers of plant protection products in Germany for colluding on price lists, partly on discounts and on net-net prices for plant protection products for retailers and end consumers.

German wholesalers of plant protection products systematically engaged in illegal price fixing for 17 years. As a result, buyers of PPPs were harmed and are now entitled to compensation.
