E.CA Economics Expert Forum – Berlin
2nd E.CA Competition Law and Economics Expert Forum
14 March 2014 in Berlin with a special focus on cartels
This all-day conference offered a broad overview of and insight into recent developments in competition law and economics, both from a German and a European perspective. The general section of the conference addressed topics such as merger cases, RPM and future developments in antitrust economics. Given the increasing number of cartel cases under private litigation a special focus was set on the topic of cartel enforcement in the second half of the conference, with a policy round table discussing policy issues regarding the detection, prosecution and litigation of cartels and other sessions addressing topics like the economics of collusion and presumptions, quantification and the pass-on effect.
