Commercial litigation – SFR/Orange second homes

After a Courtroom saga, the Paris Court of Appeal has ruled that Orange abused its dominant position for telephone and Internet access for  second homes. Orange must pay damages of €53.4 million to its telecom competitor SFR. The Court of Appeal confirmed that there is a relevant market for second homes access. This decision is based on extensive economic analysis provided by CRA for SFR, using a SSNIP test methodology.

CRA’s team assisting SFR during the procedure before the Paris Court of Appeal included Laurent Flochel, Mikaël Hervé and Celine Rizzoli.
