Abstract

The 2016 St.Gallen International Competition Law Forum ICF will serve as the backdrop for discussions on a variety of current competition law, economics and policy topics. One of the panels is going to focus on commitments and settlements and their role in the antitrust enforcement system of the European Commission. What kind of benefits do these instruments have? What are the problems and issues?

The following interview between Prof. Dr. Heike Schweitzer (Professor and Managing Director, Institute for German and European Economic Law, Competition Law and Regulatory Law, Freie Universität Berlin) and Matteo Bay (Partner and Attorney-at-Law, Latham & Watkins) offers you some food for thought and a starting point for our panel discussion. During the St.Gallen ICF itself, additional input will be offered by Céline Gauer (Director Energy and Environment, DG Competition, European Commission) and Catriona Munro (Partner and Attorney-at-Law, Maclay Murray & Spens).

Join us in St.Gallen on May 19th and 20th for the “Commitments and settlements – benefits and risks” panel.
