On 30 September 2015, Christof Swaak speaks at the annual "Cartels: Risk & Compliance" conference organised by IBC. 

The new Directive on Antitrust Damages Actions, which was adopted in November 2014 and has to be implemented within two years, makes it easier for claimants to bring cases. It allows a decision from a competition authority to serve as proof of an infringement in follow-on damages actions. This is expected to drastically increase the volume of private enforcements in Europe, making it essential for all businesses to ensure that they minimise their cartel risk or face hefty fines. Christof will discuss "Current trends and practical challenges in private enforcement" in a panel.
