Intel v Commission:

More eco or more ordo-friendly? 

The long awaited Intel v Commission Judgment will be delivered on 12 June 2014. 

This event seeks to offer a first discussion forum on the judgment. It will cover issues such as: fate of the more economic approach in abuse of dominance cases; legal status of the Guidance Paper on exclusionary abuses; intensity of judicial review; practical implications for the assessment of dominant firms’ rebates; setting fines in unclear areas of the law, etc.

Speakers at the seminar include prominent practitioners and academics.
