Join us for the EACC's  Anti-Trust Update. This will be a discussion aimed at providing the NY legal and business community with an overview of some of the current hot topics in EU antitrust law and their potential implications from a US perspective.
Private enforcement in the EU
> What is new in the European private enforcement tool kit?
> Does it change the private enforcement landscape in EU Member States?
> What is the relevance for US businesses – simply more of the same or essentially different opportunities and risk in Europe?

The (new) European passion for vertical restraints in the online world
> Where does the EU’s recent focus on vertical restraints (RPM, restrictions to online distribution etc,) come from?
> A real threat for US firms – like Google, Amazon, Facebook and the likes – when doing business in Europe?
> And a potential inspiration for US enforcers/courts?

EU focus on algorithm driven cartels
>
European Enforcer’s agenda?
> Where are the (European) cases?
> Can US businesses in the meantime navigate in the EU while relying on guidance from US precedents?
