Cover pricing in the construction industry
In 2008 the Office of Fair Trading imposed fines of £129.2 million on 103 construction firms which it found had colluded with competitors when pricing building contracts.

Given the press attention the case received at the time, the high profile names of some of the companies involved and the level of fines (even though a number were substantially reduced on appeal), there was an expectation that the industry would learn its lesson. That appears not to have been the case in light of a recent Competition and Markets Authority (“CMA”) decision.
