Brexit Transition - UK Competition Law

Access: Everybody
Fee for members: 0
Fee for non-members: 0
This event is hosted by The Law Societies.

The UK has left the EU, which means the legal frameworks for 2021 and onwards will differ significantly from the current EU landscape. This will see the UK treated for the first time as a Third Country in many areas where there used to be UK – EU cooperation, subject to any agreement on the Future Relationship.

The Law Society is focusing on the practical issues facing our members and law firms as you adapt to the new situation.

This webinar is the opportunity to hear more on how competition law supervision and enforcement has changed and what more to expect in 2021. Over the course of a panel discussion, the Law Society will aim to flag some of the most important differences within the future regime, post-EU.

The discussion will cover:
- Onshoring of EU Competition Legislation
- Cross border Mergers Approvals post-2020
- Competition Investigations
- Block Exemptions Regime
- UK Internal Market Bill
- State Aid Framework

Learning Objectives
Provide the latest information on the regulatory landscape for competition law supervision and enforcement, especially in relation to the changes flowing from the end of the transition period

Who should attend?
Solicitors from all types of private practice and in-house, practitioners in the field of competition and state aid.
