Paul Hitchings welcomes participants of Seminar on Developments in Competition Litigation

The Madrid headquarters of the Spanish Markets and Competition Commission (CNMC) provided the stage for the Fourth Seminar on Developments in Competition Litigation, an event we co-organized once again with the national competition authority.

In the presence of over 100 experts from this practice area, the chair of the CNMC, José María Marín Quemada, presented the topics of this edition’s session, including the application of the new European damages directive and the latest legal reforms in competition matters.

For the seminar’s organizer Paul Hitchings, the event "is an exceptional meeting since a law firm together with the competition authority invites the entire sector to a highly interesting debate to study upcoming challenges, which testifies to the firm’s leading position in this market."

During the seminar, in which Cani Fernández and María Pérez Carrillo participated as moderators, the areas of public and private enforcement of competition law were defined, and what role the authorities and judges play in this type of litigation was analyzed.

The seminar also covered the specific features of litigation in actions for antitrust damages with an international dimension and collective actions, as well as the quantification of damages for infringement of competition rules.

 

These issues were addressed by first-class speakers such a Amanda Cohen Benchetrit, senior judge of the Provincial Court of Appeal of Córdoba; Teodoro Ladrón, judge; Joaquim Hortalà i Vallvé, CNMC board secretary; Arantzazu Golderos, European Commission member; Cristina Gual, Gian Luca Zampa and Scott Campbell, partners at Uría Menéndez, Freshfields and Hausfeld, respectively; and Neil Purslow, co-founder and director of Therium.

Also participating in the event were Jorge Montull and Eduardo Pastor, judges; Pedro Suárez, partner at Ramón y Cajal Abogados; Carlos Pascual, economist at KPMG Asesores; Ignacio Sancho, senior judge of the Supreme Court of Spain; and Adam Aldred, barrister at Kings Chambers.
