GCR 2020: Economics continues to increase its presence in European Union competition cases
Copenhagen Economics has interviewed DG Competition and a large number of Brussels based law practices. The majority recognises that, consistent with last year’s findings, the use of economic analysis in competition cases continues to expand.
This chapter further touched upon a number of topics that received recent attention in the European competition enforcement debate. We asked lawyers to reflect on the broader potential implication of digital competition; we discussed excessive pricing cases that are seen with increased frequency in pharmaceutical industry; and asked about their opinion on recent political pressures to let industrial policy considerations enter the EU competition regulation framework.
