Annual Competition Law Update 2020

23.01.2020 EU law

The Stibbe Annual Competition Update will take place on 23 January 2020 at our office in Amsterdam.

The Update will kick off with an overview of the main developments in EU and Dutch competition law in 2019, followed by  an update on the main (mass) litigation cases, such as the follow-on damages procedures concerning trucks, air cargo, gas-insulated switch gear, and elevators and escalators. After these updates, we will take a deep dive into in-house competition law counselling. Through case studies presented by the in-house competition counsel from various companies, including Heineken, Nederlandse Spoorwegen and VodafoneZiggo, the ACM’s recent moves to actively enforce unfair trading practices rules will be further explored.

However, this does not alter the fact that it must still be assessed for each claimant whether the threshold for referral to the damages assessment procedure has been met. For this to be the case, it must be plausible that a claimant may have suffered damage as a result of the unlawful actions of the truck manufacturers. The Amsterdam District Court has not yet ruled on this issue.
