Competition Damages Directive
Event date: 26/03/15
This seminar identified and discussed the difficult and, as yet, unresolved issues that are anticipated to arise out of the interpretation and implementation of the EU Competition Damages Directive in the UK. The 6 speakers each succinctly addressed a different aspect of the Directive, including: the Directive’s commencement and limitation periods, effect of national decisions, disclosure and leniency, contribution, settlements, and passing-on and indirect purchasers. The seminar assumed that attendees already had at least a passing familiarity with the EU Damages Directive and did not seek simply to describe the content of its provisions. Instead, the speakers, well known practitioners and scholars at the forefront of their field, aimed to illuminate the interesting and difficult legal and practical issues that the Directive is anticipated to give rise to in the future.
