Why attend this unmissable event?
A year after the Damages Directive implementation deadline, which aimed to harmonise the law across Europe, private enforcement of competition law is firmly on the agenda. However with major procedural differences across jurisdictions, the opportunities for private enforcement are not fully realised across much of the continent. Furthermore, will Brexit threaten the appeal of UK for private enforcement action?
Attending the Private Enforcement of Competition Law conference will help you take full advantage of the changing legal landscape and provide you with tactical strategies whether you are a claimant or a defendant.
