Competition Law Dialogue

We are happy to invite you to join us for a new session of Wolf Theiss’ Competition Law Dialogue series of events, taking place on Thursday, 21 March 2024, starting at 9:00 a.m., at our headquarters in Bucharest, 4 Vasile Alecsandri Street, The Landmark, Building A, 4th Floor.

The interactive discussions will be led by our Wolf Theiss host, Partner Anca Jurcovan from the Bucharest office.

Special invitees:

  • Irina Popovici, Head of Cartels Service, Romanian Competition Council
  • Martin Gassler, Senior Associate, Wolf Theiss Vienna office, author of the book Information Exchange Between Competitors in EU Competition Law

How do you defend a cartel case?:

  • Information exchange under the new Horizontal Guidelines
  • Restriction by object or effects – does it ever work as a defence against cartel allegations?
  • Public announcements – when do they involve a competition law risk?
  • Price hikes and inflation – is parallel behaviour at threat?
  • Leniency and settlement of the case – should you cooperate or fight?
  • How does the coming wave of follow on damages influence the strategy?
  • Join us for breakfast on 21 March 2024 at 9:00 to explore these topics further!
