Imagine finding out your supplier was fined several million euros by the European Commission for its participation in a cartel.  It appears your company was charged inflated prices for many years and suffered damages. Would you like to know what your options are to obtain compensation? 

Thomas De Meese and Marieke Van Nieuwenborgh will walk you through the process highlighting the opportunities as well as potential challenges of seeking restitution from (former) business partners. On the basis of case studies, the speakers will give an overview of recent developments in this area (e.g., how to quantify the overcharge, when and where to bring a case). Drawing from their own experience they will provide you with the necessary tools to assess possible recovery opportunities for your company. 

Crowell & Moring is a leading player in antitrust recovery in the U.S., and has recovered over $1 billion on behalf of corporate clients. And the firm has been at the forefront of developments in Europe, making new law and already recovering tens of millions of euros. With its extensive U.S. experience and in-depth knowledge of the specific features of the European market, Crowell & Moring works closely together with its clients to obtain the best outcome when pursuing recovery opportunities.
