Session information

Pushing the boundaries of investigations – new areas of antitrust enforcement


Antitrust Section (Lead)
Communications Law Committee (Lead)


Antitrust enforcement has traditionally been concerned with dry economic theories of competitive harm. However, in recent times, antitrust authorities have become increasingly concerned with the competitive impacts that arise from breaches of data protection laws globally, and the use of personal information. This session will critically examine these trends in antitrust enforcement and consider what the future might hold.
