The Future of UK Competition Law Summit

It remains unclear what a company’s competition compliance obligations will be if the UK ceases to be a Member State. Many organisations with a presence or operations in the EU will have to cope with parallel and sometimes multiple regulatory regimes. Draft guidance issued by the CMA in January this year, goes some way to explain how enforcement will be affected post-Brexit.

During a one-day summit hosted by City and Financial Global on 11 June 2019, expert speakers from leading organisations, including HSBC, BA and Shell, offered their views on the future of the competition law landscape and Brexit’s impact, including an opportunity to hear directly from the CMA.

To round off what was a thought-provoking day, Partner Lesley Hannah shared the stage with Quinn Emmanuel’s Elaine Whiteford to offer a claimant and defendant perspective during a debate on ‘Private Enforcement and follow-on damages: how will the current framework be impacted?’.
