Current Issues in EU Competition Law
An ALFA International Tele-Seminar
Sponsored by ALFA International’s European Regional Group
TUESDAY, October 18, 2011 — 17:00 hOURS CESt, 10:00am Central Time (U.S.)
ABOUT THIS PROGRAM — EU Competition Law continues to impose significant demands upon companies doing business in Europe. The cost of violating these laws can be crippling with ever-larger fines being levied. Regulators are becoming more and more aggressive. Among the most important of the competition laws are the recent EU Commission Horizontal Guidelines, published earlier this year. A thorough understanding of the Horizontal Guidelines is crucial for in-house counsel and other lawyers practicing in this area. This seminar will focus on key aspects of the Guidelines.
The Horizontal Guidelines set the regulatory landscape pursuant to Article 101 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. They apply to most types of horizontal cooperation agreements between companies active in the same markets, even if not competitors. While such agreements can deliver great economic benefits in sharing risk, combining skills, and sharing other resources, they can also lead to competition issues where increased market power is misused. This seminar will discuss information exchanges, including issues arising from joint production agreements, standardization agreements, and joint purchasing or selling agreements.
THE PANELISTS — This program will feature four lawyers from prominent ALFA International law firms. All are experienced EU Competition Law experts who advise clients on a wide range of competition issues. Our panel will include:
Nicholas Fielding, TGC Corporate Lawyers, Warsaw, Poland
Annemieke van der Beek, Kennedy Van der Laan, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Beata Ordowska, TGC Corporate Lawyers, Warsaw, Poland
Paul Stone, Charles Russell LLP, London, England
Please view the attached document for full biographical information.

Governance and strategy are what this blog is all about, but governance and strategy themselves are actually all about making sure that business delivers its intended objectives. Objectives, in their turn, derive or ought to derive, from the mission statement of the organisation. The mission statement is supposed to say what the stakeholders want out of the business. Therefore even though this may seem to be a post on a lighter note than some of the posts in this blog, nevertheless I believe that this question really gets into the heart of what strategy and governance are actually all about. Strategy and governance are all about making sure that we want out of the business, we get.
Therefore the starting point needs to be to ask ourselves the question, what is it that we actually want from business? This is a question which I’d like to ask today to anybody who is a stakeholder, please note I didn’t say “shareholder” but “stakeholder” in any business. Please consider the businesses in which you are a stakeholder, please identify the one which has the greatest importance to you of those businesses, and with regard to that particular business, please put into the poll below all of the answers which you see as being things that you want out of that business. Things that you are looking for from your stake as a stakeholder in that business.
Hopefully this will show a nice cross-section of the different things which stakeholders are actually looking for from businesses, but if you can see in the list something which you are particularly looking for from your business please feel free to add it in the comments afterwards.
Many thanks for taking part in the poll.
