Representative Engagements
Fixed Cable Networks and Services

Mr. Ebinger, before joining Brattle, advised Liberty Global in their acquisition of Ziggo, both mainly active in the provision of fixed cable networks and services to customers, with non-overlapping networks in the Netherlands. The European Commission approved the merger subject to conditions, a decision overturned by the General Court, but later reconfirmed after further review by the Commission. In a similar line of work, Konstantin advised Unity Media in its acquisition of KabelBW, notified to the Federal Cartel Office of Germany (Bundeskartellamt). The transaction was ultimately approved.

Follow-on Damage Cases Resulting from Cartel Infringement Decisions

Throughout his career, Mr. Ebinger has advised a large number of clients in follow-on damage cases resulting from cartel infringement decisions by the European Commission or national competition authorities, particularly in German courts, but also in the national courts of other Member States. He advised Deutsche Bahn in their damage claims resulting from the railway tracks cartel in Germany. He further advised clients in the automotive industry in a number of cases (automotive glass, acoustic insulation, ball bearings, parking heaters, trucks), and has obtained further diverse sector experience through a multitude of damage cases in other industries (cement, chocolate, coffee, detergents, elevators and escalators, sugar, woodchip boards, amongst others).
