Understanding and Managing Competition Law Compliance

Course Overview

Are you confident your business is practising within the boundaries of competition law in your jurisdictions? This course focuses on the fundamental principles and key elements of competition law in the EU and UK, and how compliance works in practice.

The repercussions of breaching competition law are severe
and can include:

  • Fines against your company
  • Claims for damages
  • Disqualification of directors and possible imprisonment of individuals

You need to be aware of how competition law applies to your business and how you can reduce the risk of infringement. By learning how to put a comprehensive compliance policy in place and understanding how to enforce it, you can avoid violations and their consequences. This intensive course will
help you identify and manage these risks and ensure you’re equipped to deal with complaints and the consequences of non-compliance.

The programme covers competition law not only in the real world but also the digital world. It explores jurisdictional issues, including the long-arm US jurisdiction, and will give you practical tips on dealing with investigations and complaints. The course will take a very interactive approach, with plenty of opportunities for discussion and questions and answers.

  • Understand the law and its implications for your business
