On November 3, 2023, the University of Vienna, Department of European, International and Comparative Law, hosts an international conference on the topic “Disclosure in Antitrust Damages Actions in Europe” in collaboration with 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, the conference looks at the implementation of the disclosure rules throughout Europe. The panels discuss pressing issues, such as the CJEU case law, perspectives of national courts, cooperation with competition authorities, confidentiality arrangements, economic evidence proceedings and the cost of disclosure.
Invited speakers include: Georg Kodek (OGH/Vienna University of Economics and Business), Vivien Terrien (Court of Justice of the European Union), Hanno Wollmann (Schönherr/University of Vienna), Verena Strasser (Deputy Bundeskartellanwalt), Sarah Milde (Hengeler Mueller), Florian Neumayr (bpv Huegel), Petra Leupold (VKI), 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 at the University of Vienna, Alte Kapelle, 09:00-17:00 on November 3, 2023.
