The EU Court of Justice dismisses the appeal by a seafood company against the Commission’s fine for failure to notify a transaction (Marine Harvest)

CJEU Confirms Double Trouble for Gun Jumpers* On 4 March 2020, the European Court of Justice (“CJEU”) rendered its judgment in the Marine Harvest case.
