British Institute of International and Comparative Law - "Quantifying Antitrust Damages - Towards Non-Binding Guidance for Courts"

February 1, 2010 • London, UK

On 19 January, the European Commission published an important report on methods of quantifying antitrust damages. The Commission has long promoted private actions for damages by victims of competition law and such actions are increasing in courts across Europe. However, the lack of clarity on how to quantify damages in such actions can be a practical barrier to claims. At this event, the report's ramifications will be discussed by those involved in its preparation, and solicitors active in such litigation who represent both plaintiffs and defendants.

Questions to be discussed:

  • How do you quantify harm suffered?
  • Which types of method are acceptable?
  • What are feasible?
  • What is best practice for estimating damages?

Rob Murray is speaking at this event. Other speakers include: Dr. Gunnar Niels, Oxera and Jon Lawrence, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP.
