Luke Streatfeild becomes Chair of SCL's new Competition & Tech Group
The Society for Computers & Law (SCL) announced the creation of a new group - Competition and Tech - chaired by Hausfeld Partner, Luke Streatfeild.
The group aims to co-ordinate and promote SCL’s activities around the increasingly prominent and topical issue of competition law as it affects the tech sector.
Luke Streatfeild, said:
"As the tech sector has boomed, pervading so many aspects of the commercial and consumer world, competition law challenges have inevitably multiplied. Tech companies are continually having to engage with competition issues and adapt their business models in the light of the demands of competition law, and competition law is itself being developed by the unique challenges of regulating tech companies. There is a relentless drumbeat of news and interesting developments in this area, and it promises to be an exciting focus for SCL’s activity in the coming months and years."
In a first step, the SCL invited a diverse range of Committee members from different disciplines and all levels of seniority, to put themselves forward to join the Group as Committee Members. Further announcements are expected.
