Regulators from the Commission & CEE that took the virtual stage in 2021 included:
Key Themes Covered at Competition Law Central & Eastern Europe 2021:
The premier forum for competition lawyers from across Central & Eastern Europe - helping delegates refine their competition law strategies in light of current case law and policy developments. This unique event brought together in-house counsel from major corporates, representatives from the EU Commission and regional competition authorities as well as leading competition lawyers and economists to ensure that every angle was covered.
A discussion with senior representatives from key competition authorities across CEE on their current enforcement priorities, the extent of their co-operation and current fining policies, including fines on natural persons and criminal liability.
The ECN+ Directive
A review of the ECN+ Directive and the new powers it introduces to NCAs, as well as where we were with implementation across CEE, and what can be learnt from implementation in other jurisdictions.
An analysis on how competition law is approaching digital markets at both EU level and within CEE. A review of proposals for DSA and DMA, including who would count as gatekeepers. Then, in-house counsel spoke on how to remain compliant in this challenging environment.
Practical sessions on mergers, including an economist's perspective to ensure that delegates were fully up to date on recent merger control decisions such as prohibitions in the region and novel theories of harm.
A focus specifically on the needs of in-house counsel and examination of abuse of dominance & concentration of market power, practical challenges in vertical restraints and competition law in the age of COVID-19.
Cartels & Private Enforcement
A review on what lessons can be learnt from the recent cases in cartels, bid rigging & tendering. Then, a focus on the impact of the Damages Directive and an analysis of current pending cases in the region to help delegates shape their practical strategies whether they were a claimant or a defendant.
