IFLR Competition Law Forum 2015 - November 12, 2015



Overview



The second IFLR Competition Law Forum returned to the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, London on 12 November. The event attracted an even larger audience than last year with over 250 delegates registering to attend to benefit from cutting edge commentary and knowledge sharing with other leading in-house counsel.

The Forum welcomed back the Competition and Markets Authority where the executive director Michael Grenfell delivered a keynote speech on '"Tough but fair" - the CMA's approach to tackling cartels and anti-competitive practices'.

In a packed one-day programme, delegates discussed how the greatest threats to their businesses aren't from the regulators, but from private enforcement actions and damages claims. All delegates also participated in interactive breakout sessions on merger control, economics in competition law and information exchange for further debate.

Key takeaways from the event can be found here.
