A competition law compliance programme must form an integral part of the risk management implemented by any business.
The prosecution of competition law infringements triggers massive fines, negative press, potential damage claims from customers and suppliers, substantial procedural costs and a waste of management time. In addition, there is an increasing trend in several EU Member States to hold also individuals personally liable for cartel infringements.
Competition law compliance is therefore not a luxury and the implementation of a solid competition compliance program is a good investment of time and resources.
The Competition & EU team of contrast is specialised in developing tailor-made competition law compliance programmes for its clients (private companies and trade associations). The team conducts in-house training sessions on competition law developments almost on a weekly basis.
