Numerous questions as to the effect and interplay of public and private sanctions have been raised by the current shake-up of the UK public enforcement framework accompanied by a consultation on private antitrust actions. The European Commission has also attempted to provide guidance for the quantification of harm in private antitrust actions.

The CCP’s 8th annual conference brings together experts from the USA, Australia and Europe to discuss these developments from an economic, legal and political-science perspective. The speakers will provide a framework for appraising at the effects and achievements of public and private sanctions in the UK and the EU. Topics include the current approach to cartel sanctions, leniency and the interplay of public and private enforcement. In addition, the conference seeks to stimulate the discussion about the on-going consultation on private antitrust enforcement in the UK.
