New book on agreements between competitors : a competition-law minefield
16/04/2015

This month, a book titled "Horizontal Agreements and Cartels in EU Competition Law" and focusing entirely on agreements and arrangements between competitors is being published by the prestigious Oxford University Press. These kinds of practices are viewed with suspicion in competition law. For the most serious violations, the so-called cartels, the fines can quickly rise into the tens and even hundreds of millions. Many Belgian companies too have already run afoul of the competition-law rules and been obliged to pay heavy fines.

The book is edited by Frank Wijckmans and Filip Tuytschaever, both of them partners in the specialised law firm contrast

Forum selection and choice of law clauses: they’re not just boilerplates...
01/07/2021

However, you do not want to be needlessly confrontational with your supplier, so you ask your legal department for advice.

The GDPR entered into force exactly 3 years ago, on 25 May 2018. Many companies began implementing the GDPR around that time, but can no longer see the forest for the trees. Other companies do not know where to start at all. And those companies which did complete the exercise at some point grow discouraged when they think about evaluating and updating the first exercise.

Blow the whistle! New European protection for whistleblowers.
12/02/2021

You are a CEO and one day a senior employee from the financial department asks to have a private talk with you. During the conversation, the employee explains that she has a strong suspicion that her manager is engaged in fraudulent activity. She has had this suspicion for some time now, but there was nowhere she could go with it.
