The 2008 financial crisis is behind us, but tough times are still ahead. Stressed by monetary constraints and an ever-changing world, the European Union must reorganize and provide economic guidance. With an aim: to foster a climate of better competitiveness being installed permanently.

While in most industries companies tend to become more compliant with antitrust regulations, unfair competitive conducts and new cartel cases are still hitting the headlines every week. Over-deterrent fines haven't put a halt to these practices. Independent authorities are looking to strike the right balance for each case. Damages, for instance, are highly scrutinized. But many questions remain unanswered regarding antitrust, mergers, state aid. And also, how to keep pace with the rapidly evolving markets, such as web content and applications. The largest business-focused European congress on antitrust and mergers returns for the second time, with 120+ speakers and 400 delegates on December 1 & 2, 2011 in Brussels.

Please join MoFo partner, Tom McQuail, along with several practitioners for a panel discussion titled "Customer Actions: the Changing Landscape" during Premier Cercle's Competition 2011 Summit. Mr. McQuail will be moderating this discussion, topics of which include:

  • Damages: the public consultation on quantification of harm caused by infringements of EU antitrust rules
  • Will the EC finally introduce legislation to be voted by the Parliament?
  • What is to be learnt from recent cases in UK and The Netherlands?
  • Is acceptability of collective redress for cartel claims a first step in Germany?
  • Is the political will strong enough to impulse change in France and Italy?
  • Scenario for Europe compared to US
