Mayer Brown Legal Update
Refusal to Deal

Businesses are generally free to decide with whom they will do business.

Refusal to deal with a business partner may be problematic when a business with a substantial degree of market power controls an essential input or distribution channel, and, by withholding that input or preventing access to the distribution channel, forecloses a business from the relevant market damages its ability to compete effectively in that market.
