In-house Compliance of EU Competition Rules in Practice

Simone Pieri ICLA Italia (the Italian branch of ICLA Europe), Jacques Moscianese, ESSEC Business School Paris, and Irene de Angelis Intesa Sanpaolo have a new piece on In-house Compliance of EU Competition Rules in Practice.

ABSTRACT: The heavy sanctionatory and reputational damage that may follow a violation of EU competition rules is duly taken into account by undertakings that have drammatically increased the investments in competition compliance. EU institutions have adopted a completely neutral position concerning the value to be given to compliance programmes. The industry is deeply engaged in the debate surrounding competition compliance efforts as a number of initiatives taken recently to diffuse compliance culture witness. To structure an effective and robust antitrust compliance programme companies primarily refer to their in-house counsel due to their direct involvement in the company's decisions.
