What you will gain by attending this conference
Competition law compliance is crucial for your company. Penalties for breaching competition law can be up to 10% of global turnover and several companies have recently found themselves in the spotlight accused of unlawful behaviour. Are you confident that you and your internal clients are aware of the impact of competition law on your day-to-day activities?
ButterworthsÂ® Competition Law for In-House Legal Advisers has been specially devised for in-house lawyers advising on competition law matters. Our extensive market research shows that in-house advisers have different learning needs to private practice competition lawyers. This commercially focussed conference will keep you up to date with this complex and ever-changing area of law by addressing legal privilege, cartels, pricing and dominant position, dawn raids and the role of economics in competition law.
Chaired by BT's Head of Competition Paolo Palmigiano, this conference enables you to share ideas with fellow in-house lawyers and benefit from the insights of competition law experts from private practice, regulatory bodies and industry, including competition lawyers from Barclays, Shell and Vodafone.
Attending this conference will enable you to answer these important questions:
- What are the current enforcement priorities of the OFT and the European Commission?
- Have you got an effective risk-management strategy in place?
- To what extent will the Akzo Nobel decision impact on in-house lawyers in practice?
- How can economic and empirical analysis resolve key questions in competition investigations and disputes?
- Is your company fully prepared for a competition investigation?
- Who should attend this conference?
