Pérez-Llorca advises BlaBlaCar in their successful defence of the claim brought by Confebús


Pérez-Llorca acted as BlaBlaCar’s legal counsel in their defence of the claim brought by Confebús. Partner Guillermina Ester and associate Sara de Román Pérez, from the firm’s Litigation and Arbitration practice area, represented BlaBlaCar’s interests in these legal proceedings.

Following the dismissal of the interim measures in January 2016 by Commercial Court number 2, this same court ruled in favour of BlaBlaCar in the hearing for the unfair competition claim brought by Confebús.

In the words of Guillermina Ester: “The ruling correctly defines BlaBlaCar: ‘a platform which is not for organising transport, but for connecting individuals who wish to travel together and share certain costs related to the trip (…), which falls solely and exclusively within the scope of private transport’. On this basis, and following an exhaustive analysis of Spanish and European legislation, this ruling corroborates the correct decision not to prohibit its activity through interim measures.”
