On the basis of an analysis of the Court of Justice rulings, this paper seeks to explore the possibilities to set minimum fees for self-employed without infringing EU competition law. For that purpose, two possible U-turns are discussed. It is submitted that utilizing an association of undertakings as a veil to disguise anticompetitive behaviour is not a very successful endeavour. Adopting minimum fees for self-employed in a collective bargaining agreement may be a more successful route. But everything depends on the leeway the Court of Justice is willing to give to social policy.
