Selective distribution is the system by which an undertaking defines and selects the distribution network for its products, particularly luxury goods, in order to preserve the image and prestige of the brand. European case law considers this method of sale lawful when certain conditions are met.

These issues are explored by Francesca La Rocca Sena of our firm in the article: Selective distribution, the Court of Milan defines the luxury product, published by NT Plus of Sole24Ore.
