Private enforcement of competition law in the EU

La Revue Concurrences, en collaboration avec Compass Lexecon et Allen & Overy, a organisé un dîner avec l’Avocat général Maciej Szpunar le 15 juin 2017 à Varsovie sur le thème du Private enforcement dans l’Union européenne.

Private Enforcement and Private International Law - Maciej Szpunar

It may seem that I have chosen a niche issue as the main topic of my intervention : private enforcement and private international law. Allow me to explain the motifs that encouraged me to make such a seemingly invidious choice.

First, interrogations concerning private enforcement of the competition law have a non-negligible practical significance. Recently, we have witnessed the importance of this phenomenon in the European Court of Justice (ECJ) judgement in Cartel Damage Claims (CDC) [1]. This judgment will serve as a future point of reference during my intervention.

Second, this issue contributes to the ongoing discussion on the implementation of Directive 2014/104/EU [2]. In Poland, as we know, the implementation process led to adoption of the act on claims for compensation for damage caused by infringement of competition law.
