Having launched a new law firm 10 years ago in the London market, and having pioneered competition damages actions in the UK and Europe, Hausfeld’s Vice Chair and London Managing Partner, Anthony Maton, will start off the day with his keynote speech, building on his expert knowledge to address the current landscape for competition litigation, and what it means for clients, consumers, regulators and the wider market going forward.
The sessions, which each include a panel of legal experts from within the practice, will cover:
- Developments in abuse of dominance claims
- The use of expert evidence in competition law claims
- Developing issues, such as the prospect of a UK state aid regime
- Challenges of certification in UK class action proceedings.
Partner and competition litigation expert, Anna Morfey, joins the morning panel to offer insight into ‘litigating financial services claims’, alongside Charlie Morris of Woodsford Litigation Funding and Angela Taylor of Travers Smith. They will offer views from claimant and defendant perspectives, and update practitioners on the progress of a variety of financial services related claims, both in the High Court and EU jurisdictions.
The day concludes with a drinks reception, providing the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals from business, public sector and private practice firms.
