As we enter into the transition period, uncertainty remains around Brexit and the long shadow it casts over the future of competition law in the UK.  The 2020 UK Competition Law Conference aims to clarify some of the implications of the UK leaving the European Union, with particularly salient questions arising on state aid, the role of the CMA, problems of parallel regulation, and higher levels of state intervention.
