Arbitrating Competition Law Issues: A European and US Perspective

12th June 2006

This conference will focus on the interrelation between international arbitration and competition law in the widest sense of the word. It will cover both the continental and the transatlantic approach to arbitrating competition law as well as merger control issues. Specific attention will be given to the nascence of the so-called ex officio duty on part of the international arbitrator to raise competition law issues in order to secure the enforceability of his award within the European Union and its development since the ECJ's seminal ruling in Eco Swiss. The use and utility of the European Commission's recent practice to use international arbitration in remedy-related arbitrations within the framework of Articles 81/82 of EC Treaty and EC merger control will receive particular attention.

This Conference has been organized together with
