Competition Law in the Digital Era: Adapting to the New Environment

Review regulations, policies & enforcement around the globe to help shape practical strategies for any type of business with an online presence

In-depth review of how competition law is evolving to address the challenges of the digital era:

As the European Commission introduces a plethora of groundbreaking regulations for digital markets including the Digital Markets and Digital Services Acts and the authorities around the world are formulating their policies, now is the time to ensure you fully understand the proposals, the practical implications and where it leaves traditional competition law. 

Digital Markets Act (DMA)

Consider the details of the Digital Markets Act (DMA), including thresholds, how they will be assessed and how it will be applied. Then turn your attention to its interplay with competition law and what it will mean for platforms that are not designated as gatekeepers. 

New Regulations & Competition Law

Analyse the DSA, DGA, Data Act and AI Act and how these new acts will be enforced. Consider what will be enforced under new rules and under competition law, as well as how concurrent legislation might work in practice. Finally, what will it mean for corporates to be classed as a regulated industry and how should businesses be structured?

Article 102 Enforcement

Get a full update on recent cases including Qualcomm, the Google shopping cases, German Facebook case and others, as well as the changing notion of market power in digital markets.

National Competition Authorities' Approaches

Analyse developments in Italy, France and Germany as well as the likely role of national competition authorities in enforcing the DMA and whether there is coordinated action between them.

Merger Control in Digital Markets

Join two sessions on merger control in digital markets focusing on Article 22, killer acquisitions and dynamic theories of harm as well as remedies including divesting, mandatory data sharing or interoperability. Then consider market definition and market power in data-driven markets.
