The conference to keep you up to date on competition law developments at both EU and national level:

The ECN+ Directive was analysed to see how it will change Irish competition law. In-house counsel shared practical strategies and considered how competition law is adapting in the age of COVID-19, Brexit and greater protectionism:

Hear from the Commission

Delegates heard directly from 2 DG Comp officials: Pierantonio D'Elia and Szilvia Szekely on mergers and digital markets, and posed their burning questions to them.

ECN+ Directive

Delegates heard directly from the CCPC on their progress with implementation of the ECN+ Directive and its likely practical impact on Irish competition law. They then heard from in-house counsel on how they would like to see the ECN+ implemented in Ireland and their concerns with the changes ahead.

Mergers & FDI Rules

Recent merger control developments at EU and national level were reviewed, including the impact of COVID-19 on procedural developments and consolidation. Delegates then joined us for an interactive panel session to consider the new Foreign Direct Investment Regulation and its practical impact.  

State Aid in the Age of COVID-19

The Temporary Framework for state aid was analysed to see how it has been used across Europe and in Ireland so far, along with an update on recent state aid cases and how to assess selectivity and advantage.

Competition Law, Ethics & Compliance

This session was created specifically for in-house counsel, delivered by in-house counsel! Delegates heard from their peers on how to create an effective compliance programme and how to get their message across to their organisation. They were able to gain practical tips on how to prepare their company for a dawn raid and how to deal with them, as well as addressing the subsequent media attention.

Competition Law in Context: COVID-19 & Brexit

After a tumultuous year and with further uncertainty caused by Brexit, we examined how competition law is adapting to the challenges. Delegates heard practical perspectives on the impact of COVID-19 on cooperation, especially in the pharma sector, and analysed the new relationship between EU, UK and Irish competition law.
