Brexit: Implications for UK and EU competition policy and law enforcement
1 PM EDT
With the delivery of the UK’s Article 50 notice on March 29, 2017, Theresa May launched the two-year negotiating process leading to the first exit of a Member State from the European Union (EU). The negotiations will affect virtually every economic and policy area in Europe, including competition policy. These effects will be felt first and foremost in merger control, but the enforcement of cartels and other infringements, the evolution of private antitrust litigation and, more broadly, the direction of EU and UK antitrust policy, also will be affected. This panel will examine these changes.
