The Competition Section looks at Information Exchange

Competition laws recognise that the exchange of information between competitors may be beneficial. However, competition concerns arise when the information exchanged reduces strategic uncertainty, making it easier for competitors to predict one another’s behaviour and adjust their own. Businesses must be careful that any exchanges of information do not breach competition law and expose the company to significant fines, reputational damage and/or potential private damages actions, in addition to criminal sanctions for individuals.

Rachel Hetherington, antitrust & foreign investment partner at Linklaters, will speak on the changing global competition law landscape for information exchange.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Lessons learned from recent enforcement decisions in the UK
  • The new horizontal guidance from the European Commission and the CMA
  • What this means in practical terms for companies
