SPCG has persuaded the Court of Appeal in Warsaw to deny the appeal by the President of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKIK) of a lower court's ruling reversing his determination that T-Mobile Polska S.A. had participated in an agreement with three other telecommunication operators to restrict competition.

In its decision of November 23, 2011, the President of UOKIK stated that the four major mobile operators in Poland had concluded a prohibited agreement involving the provision of mobile TV services with DVB-H technology. UOKIK subsequently imposed pecuniary penalties on the operators, including T-Mobile Polska S.A., in an amount exceeding PLN 34 million.

In a judgment of June 19, 2015, the Court of Competition and Consumer Protection set aside the decision of the President of UOKIK in full. On March 15, 2017, the Court of Appeal in Warsaw dismissed the President's appeal, bringing the matter to a conclusion.

SPCG Partner Slawomir Dudzik and Senior Associate Jacek Budzik represented T-Mobile Polska in the proceedings.
