Luís Campos, Manager in the Competition Practice at Frontier Economics, spoke today at the Concurrences conference on private enforcement that was held at the Paris Court of Appeals. Drawing on Frontier’s extensive experience in private enforcement and follow-on damages work, Luís provided an economist’s perspective on the different types of damages that may be compensated in such proceedings as well as the challenges associated with estimating them. Irène Luc (Paris Court of Appeals) and Sylvain Justier (Magenta) were the other two panellists alongside Luís. The panel was moderated by David Bosco (Aix-Marseille Université).
Throughout the conference, speakers from legal, academic and institutional backgrounds discussed the current state of private enforcement in the EU and in particular, the stipulations of the Damages Directive and its transposition into French competition law. Luís highlighted three challenges :
Concurrences is a quarterly peer-reviewed journal that is released to discuss national and EU competition laws.
Frontier regularly advises clients in establishing or defending allegations of abuse of dominance and other competition matters before the courts, and in follow-on actions after competition authorities have made decisions.
