Invitation to our webinar series

Join us for our webinar series EU & UK Competition Law: Essential Knowledge for In-house Lawyers (e.g. non-specialists).

Competition law remains a priority compliance area for businesses. It impacts upon a wide variety of day to day business practices, from pricing, distribution and managing suppliers and resellers, through to trade association activity, R&D collaboration and M&A activity.

Our program of basic webinars will cover the key areas of competition law in the UK and in the EU and the important issues you need to be aware of. These webinars are primarily aimed at participants who are new to competition law and/or who have not had specialist competition law training or extensive experience applying EU/UK competition law. The aim of the webinars is to equip in-house lawyers with the skills to spot the issues and avoid the pitfalls.

All webinars will begin at 11:00am BST / 12:00pm CEST (unless otherwise stated) and are scheduled to run for up to 60 minutes. If you reside in a different time zone and wish to verify your time – please see timeanddate.com for the time in your location.
