“Reconciling disclosure of Confidential Information & enforcement of competition law”
Wed 09/10/2019

Resource person:
Professor Richard Whish QC.

Prof. Whish is Emeritus Professor of Law at King’s College London and in 2014 he was appointed QC Honoris Causa. In 2011 he was recipient of the Global Competition Review Award for Academic Excellence. He is the co-author, with David Bailey, of Competition Law, 8th edition 2015 (OUP), and the author of many other books, articles, case-notes and book reviews on various aspects of international competition law and policy.

Course Synopsis: A key challenge faced by competition agencies in applying confidentiality rules is balancing the need to protect confidential information and the need for transparent enforcement. Addressing the competing objectives of transparency (to the parties under investigation about the evidence against them and more broadly in promoting public understanding of competition enforcement) and confidentiality protections (to information obtained by competition agencies during their investigations) is central to promoting fair, informed, and predictable enforcement.

This session will take participants through the challenges and case laws which have addressed this issue.

Target Audience: Law Practitioners

"Managing and preventing cross-border disputes that arise from lack of uniformity in the choice of applicable law"
Mon 14/10/2019

Resource Person:
Dr. Jeffrey Talpis, Professor, Notary titulaire de la Chaire du Notariat de l’Université de Montréal

Course description: Identifying the conflicts of law and jurisdiction triggered by conflicts arising from for example, a Canadian descendent having his last domicile in France bequeaths all his movable and immovable property to his second wife under a Quebec will, thus excluding his Mauritian children born out of a first marriage who are residing with their mother in Mauritius. He leaves behind movable and immovable property in Mauritius, France and Quebec. Contrary to the law of Quebec, where testamentary freedom dominates the law of succession, children have a forced share under French and Mauritian law. If an issue is raised by a French, Quebec or Mauritian Notary, there will be a dispute as to the rights of the parties arising in particular from an absence of uniformity as to the law(s) applicable to the succession. The course will also provide possible solutions under the forum and foreign law and in the techniques of management and preventive measures highlighting the techniques that could be employed by cross-border practitioners to manage such conflicts and where possible to prevent them.
