In-depth review of one of the most important areas of competition law now:

As the authorities around the world are formulating new regulations and policies to respond to the challenges of big data and platforms for competition law, now is the time to ensure that you understand the proposals and consider their practical implications in detail.

Regulation of platforms in Europe: DMA & DSA

Join us to hear directly from the European Commission on the proposals for the Digital Markets Act & Digital Services Act, then hear from national competition authorities on the developments in key jurisdictions including UK, Germany, France and Italy.

Global Enforcement Trends

Analyse how key regulators around the world are approaching enforcement of digital markets, including USA's approach under the new Administration. Consider key questions for global enforcement efforts including whether there is a convergence of approaches and how best to regulate global companies?

In-house Counsel Perspectives

Share practical perspectives with fellow in-house counsel from data rich companies, including how to deal with possible pitfalls and inconsistencies of approaches and how to ensure global compliance.

Big Data & Merger Control

Consider practical problems raised by big data in merger control including recent developments in horizontal and vertical platform mergers, authorities’ approaches to killer acquisitions and foreclosure and lessons learnt from recent mergers including Facebook/Kustomer, Amazon/ MGM deal and others. Then hear from an economics perspective on market definition & market power in data driven markets.

Horizontal Cooperation

Review the Horizontal Block Exemption Regulation, what cooperation in relation to data is permissible and how data sharing and data pooling is different to information exchange. Then consider when a vertical relationship is horizontal and how the new VBER approach the challenges of data sharing in dual distribution scenarios.

Internet of Things & Artificial Intelligence

As the authorities are sharpening their approaches to IoT and artificial intelligence, examine the proposals for IoT and Artificial Intelligence regulation and review EC Sector Inquiry into consumer IoT and CMA study into mobile ecosystems.
