03.11.2023 – University of Vienna Alte Kapelle
We are happy to announce the opening of registration for the Conference “Disclosure in Antitrust Damages Actions in Europe” in collaboration between the University of Vienna, Department of European, International and Comparative Law, The European Circle for Competition Damages, and the Austrian Society for European Law (ÖGER).
Access to evidence has been marked as the key issue in antitrust damages actions in the 2014 EU Damages Directive. Roughly ten years after the Damages Directive and a first wave of cases on national level, this conference looks at the implementation of the disclosure rules throughout Europe. On the panels, we will discuss pressing issues, such as the CJEU case law, perspectives of national courts (Austria, Germany, Spain, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, and UK), cooperation with competition authorities, confidentiality arrangements, disclosure and economic evidence proceedings, cost of disclosure, and much more.
Invited speakers include: Georg Kodek (OGH/WU – Vienna University of Economics and Business), Vivien Terrien (Court of Justice of the European Union), Hanno Wollmann (Schönherr/Universität Wien), Verena Strasser (Bundeskartellanwalt-Stellvertreterin), Sarah Milde (Hengeler Mueller), Florian Neumayr (bpv Huegel), Petra Leupold (Verein für Konsumenteninformation), Peter Gussone (GQL), Julia Suderow (Suderow Fernández Abogadas), Joost Möhlmann (Van Benthem & Keulen), Miguel Sousa Ferro (Milberg Sousa & Associados), Clemens Kerle (CMS), Ben Lasserson (Mishcon de Reya LLP), Martin Seegers (CDC Cartel Damage Claims), Martin Gassler (Wolf Theiss), and Lena Hornkohl (University of Vienna).
The conference will take place in person at the University of Vienna, Alte Kapelle, on 3rd November 2023 from 9.00 – 17.00 and is free of charge. The program is attached. Space is limited.
