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.

Short Reads - Op 27 juli 2022 heeft de Raad van State bevestigd dat de Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens onterecht een boete van € 575.000 aan VoetbalTV heeft opgelegd. De hoop bestond dat de Afdeling antwoord zou geven op de vraag of de AP terecht of onterecht meent dat een zuiver commercieel belang géén gerechtvaardigd belang kan zijn in de zin van de Algemene Verordening Gegevensbescherming.
