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) . 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 . 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.
