2007-06-18: US Supreme Court Reverses Itself on Price Fixing

A recent US Supreme Court decision reversed a long-standing precedent and declared it not necessarily illegal for chains to set minimum prices. The same had been said earlier for maximum prices. The legality of price fixing is, therefore, now fully based on the effect it may have on the markets.

Our consultants have advised hundreds of companies of all sizes in most industries worldwide, including such brands as Commerce Clearing House, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, 3M, Pacific Bell, SealMaster, SkyTel, Sears, Henchy Industries, Hyatt Hotels, Ace Hardware, Beard & Warner, CBS, Stewart Warner, United Airlines, Northwest Orient, Coldwell Banker, Fidelity, Freuhauf Trailer, Buffalo Wild Wings, Budget Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental, Ryder Truck Rental, Chevron, Getty Oil, BP/Amoco, Mobil, Shell, Texaco Europe (Norway, Sweden, Denmark), St-Hubert BBQ (Canada), Pollo Campero (Guatemala), Helados Bon (Dominican Republic), Max’s (the Philippines), Nestle (Switzerland, Italy), Sonae Group/Orbitur Campgrounds (Portugal), The International Investor (Kuwait, England, Switzerland), Sushi Parties (Japan), L.O.G. (Norway).
