WG Competition Law

The Working Group on Competition Law aims to bring competition law to the forefront and make it more accessible to the members of in-house legal and compliance departments. The group’s focus is to discuss competition law challenges, general principles and evolutions in a practical and easily digestible manner and to increase awareness on competition law topics and their critical importance for day-to-day compliance of companies. The group is inviting all colleagues interested in (or intimidated by!) competition law to join, irrespective of whether they have a background on competition law or not. The aim is to exchange experiences, challenges, advice, and lessons learned across various industries, discuss, and connect in an informal and friendly setting.
