CompLaw: Private Enforcement

A truly pan-European review of the current opportunities in private enforcement, whether you are a claimant or a defendant.

Private enforcement 2024 highlights:

Judges’ Roundtable

Hear from a plethora of European judges on how their courts are approaching case management and quantification of damages.

DMA, DSA & Digital Markets

Discuss the scope of private enforcement under the DMA, DSA and other digital markets regulations. Will there be divergence between the EU and the UK? And, what does Germany’s 11th Amendment to the Competition Act mean in this area of competition law? 

Article 102

Review current Article 102 cases including Google Shopping, Heureka v Google, Apple, as well as private enforcement in the pharma sector. Consider standalone abuse of dominance cases and how economic perspectives in this area differ from more traditional cartel cases. 

Collective Actions & Claims Bundling

How should claims be bundled? What is the best way to get carriage disputes certified in the UK? What lessons can be be learnt from Meta, RoRo and RHA? And, how do we best manage such large cases, often in parallel and even conflicting jurisdictions? Join us to hear practical guidance on these key questions. 

Jurisdiction Revisited

Consider what jurisdiction the EU Courts have and whether EU law is applicable to claims brought by non-EU claimants for conduct outside the EU. Also, examine the impact of Brexit on the UK as a premier private enforcement forum in Europe. 

Quantification of Damages & Disclosure

Review approaches to disclosure by the courts in the UK, Germany and Netherlands, including whether a court can freely estimate or if there's a need for previous disclosure. What is reasonable? What conditions are required for estimation? Then, analyse the role of economists within disclosure.
