Our Approach

Our mission is to contribute to greater justice and a sounder economy. We accomplish this by obtaining optimum compensation for companies injured by competition law infringements. CDC is specifically structured to optimise the compensation process with a truly unique multi-disciplinary and multi-lingual team of experts in competition law, economics, data analytics, funding, negotiation, and IT. We work on a “no-win no-fee” basis unless damaged companies request otherwise. We invest our own resources and entirely manage all aspects of the case. Under this model damaged companies incur no costs or financial risk relating to the potential legal action. We also offer a wide range of specialised tailor-made services to damaged companies, trade associations and law firms in relation to funding, case assessment, data collection and economic analysis. Since 2002, CDC has achieved an unrivalled success rate in Court and obtained numerous significant settlements in some of the largest cartel cases sanctioned by the European Commission.

CDC remains unique in Europe for three main reasons:

CDC is the pioneer and leader in antitrust damage recovery in Europe

We benefit from extensive experience and an unrivalled track record. To date, CDC has claimed over two billion euros in antitrust damages for European companies and has been successful in 100% of the cases pursued.

CDC offers companies the opportunity to fully outsource the antitrust damage recovery process

We are the only company in Europe that gathers under one roof a multidisciplinary and international team dedicated to streamlining the antitrust recovery process and optimising compensation.

CDC fully aligns its interests with those of the damaged companies

We work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis unless requested otherwise. We assume all costs and risks tied to the legal action, and only receive a reasonable share of the compensation when the case prevails.
