CC&P Wine and Wisdom: The Ins and Outs of Brexit for Competition and Regulation

Wine & Wisdom

Three months on from the 23 June referendum vote of the UK people to leave the European Union many questions remain unanswered.  We will examine the impact of Brexit – in its potential forms – on competition and sector regulation, among the most significant areas of EU law and enforcement.

Suzanne Rab, barrister specialising in EU law, competition law and regulation will explore some of the most pressing legal questions of the day relating to the process and form of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.  She will share with you her insights on the impact of Brexit on competition law enforcement (agreements, commercial practices, state aid and public procurement), as well as the private enforcement of competition disputes.  The effect on economic regulation of some of the industry sectors where EU regulation is most visible, including financial services, energy and telecoms, will be discussed.   

Among the issues to be discussed include:

  • Is a vote of the UK parliament needed or desirable before a notice to trigger UK withdrawal can be served under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union?
  • Could the process for UK withdrawal be reversed?
  • Will UK businesses find themselves subject to an increased risk of double jeopardy in the form of parallel regulation and investigations once Brexit is complete?
  • Will Brexit dampen the current momentum for private litigation of competition disputes in the UK?
  • Which industry sectors are likely to be most affected by Brexit?
  • What can be done now to manage regulatory risk?
