Maverick Advocaten successfully represented Canal+ in proceedings against Astra

Maverick Advocaten has successfully represented Canal+ in interim proceedings before the court in Amsterdam. Satellite operator SES, the parent undertaking of Astra, summoned Canal+ to pay certain fees. In its judgement of 1 November the court has rejected SES' multi-million claim on the ground that they need further factual investigation and can only be assessed in proceedings on the merits. Please find the judgment of the court here.

Maverick Advocaten cooperated in this case with Jaap Kuster of Biesheuvel Jansen Advocaten and French competition law boutique firm Fréget Tasso de Panafieu.
