International Competition Law (III)
Litigating Private Competition Claims:
Key Lessons from Recent Developments
Private enforcement of competition law is increasingly important. This is demonstrated by the growing number of claims for damages and/or other remedies arising from national and international cartels and other anti-competitive practices.
This webinar aims to explore this rapidly developing trend by discussing a selection of landmark decisions and judgments in Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and the European Union.
The key topics will include:
(1) Raising competition law infringements as a defence to a private action in Hong Kong: Issues and lessons to be learnt from Taching v Meyer
(2) The emergence of the UK as a major venue for private enforcement actions: Collective proceedings and other key developments in follow-on litigation
(3) Arbitration as an alternative to private competition litigation
