Dimitrov, Petrov & Co. Successful for Medicus Trade in Challenge to Anti-Competitive Ordinance


Dimitrov, Petrov & Co. is reporting that, after almost two years of litigation, the 5-member panel of Bulgaria's Supreme Administrative Court has issued its final decision in favor of firm client Medicus Trade – a company from the Mareshki medicines retail chain repealing provisions of the country's Ordinance No. 4 on the terms and conditions for prescribing and dispensing of medicines.

According to Dimitrov, Petrov & Co., the firm's team "had successfully applied for competition advocacy before the Commission for the Protection of Competition and in parallel proceedings before the Supreme Administrative Court for challenging unlawful and anti-competitive provisions of Ordinance No. 4 concerning the dispensing of medicines." According to the firm "this is yet another case of a successful repeal of provisions aimed at limiting the competition on the medicines retail market."

The Dimitrov, Petrov & Co. team was led by Partner Metodi Baykushev and Senior Associate Donka Stoyanova.
