Cyprus Bar Association Facing Challenge of Price-Fixing Over European Union Rules
Fairness in Fees group in London is bringing the challenge over the fees basis utilized for non-court cases and the challenge will be made by Robert O’Donoghue of Brick Court Chambers.
The case which focuses on the Cyprus Bar Association’s ‘minimum fee regulations’ is to take the form of a complaint to the European Competition Commission.
According to the group, under the Bar Association rules, the execution of a will could cost 10 times more in Cyprus than in the UK. The complaint is to point out that the rules are a breach of the cartel and price-fixing provisions of Article 101 of the Treaty of Rome.
