With competition authorities in the EU (including at national level) and the UK, increasingly willingly to investigate companies operating in the financial sector, the threat of heavy fines on companies as well as disqualifications and imprisonment of individuals who breach the competition rules become evermore real.
It is now more important than ever that all business people, especially those that have regular contact with other companies in the same industry, have an awareness of competition law – and in particular the rules and practice around exchanging commercially sensitive information. With so-called effective leniency programmes in place, there are big incentives for companies and individuals to blow the whistle on their participation in illegal conduct and thereby to avoid allegations of illegal conduct.
This IUA training session is designed to provide all members with a basic understanding of EU and UK competition law and to assist by means of practical examples, to know what types of agreements and conduct are permissible, and thereby to avoid allegations of illegal conduct.
Please note that as Clifford Chance are accredited by the Law Society, attendees qualify for CPD points.
