Stibbe Annual Competition Law Update

17.01.2019 EU law

The Stibbe Annual Competition Law Update will take place on 17 January 2019 (14.30 - 17.45 hours) at our offices in Amsterdam.

In addition to the regular updates on the main developments in EU and Dutch competition law and competition litigation over 2018, this year's event features a special programme to prepare you for 2019 including a guide to help you navigate through the maze of vertical competition issues in the online and offline world. Next year is set to be dynamic in the area of antitrust for online and offline distribution models: the Block Exemption Regulation on vertical restraints will come under review, the Geo-blocking Regulation is now applicable and more enforcement action on sales restrictions and digital conduct is likely. This event is an ideal opportunity to hear a practitioner’s perspective on these issues so you are prepared for the year ahead.
