Exclusive invite-only event, Chatham House Rule
Location: Rome Cavalieri, A Waldorf Astoria Resort
21 November 19:00 – 22 November 2024 14:00 CET
Antitrust legislation has never been as complex. Even with a multitude of digital solutions, the current climate has created a labyrinth that General Counsel must effectively navigate to ensure corporate success.
European General Counsel in particular are faced with evolving regulatory landscape and market trends. Adapting to the digital markets under the EU’s Digital Markets Act (DMA), navigating the complex merger control regime under the European Commission’s aggressive stance on merger reviews (especially in tech and pharmaceutical sectors), requires General Counsel to conduct meticulous due diligence and anticipate regulatory pushbacks. Amongst other things, the current period has also seen a rise in ‘killer acquisitions’ scrutiny, which demands a more nuanced approach to deal-making and strategic planning.
In addition, the geopolitical landscape has significantly influenced antitrust enforcement globally. The increasing tension between global economic powers has led to diverging antitrust policies and enforcement actions. This poses a challenge for multinational companies operating across these jurisdictions, requiring General Counsel to develop adaptable and region-specific compliance strategies.
Participation is organised on an invite-only basis. General Counsel need to only organise their travel arrangements – participation and accommodation are included in the invitation.
