Commissioner Vestager’s first term is drawing to a close, as she prepares to take office for a second term next week. Episode five of our six-part blog series looks back at the past five years of EU merger control enforcement. We also highlight trends that we expect to continue.
Overarching themes for Vestager’s first term as Competition Commissioner are antitrust in the tech sector and State aid and taxation. But it was also characterised by vigorous cartel enforcement more generally. Episode 2 of this series looks at EU cartel enforcement over the past 5 years and considers what is to come.
Vestager’s handling of abuse of dominance cases should be remembered for tougher enforcement across a range of sectors. At the same time, the Commission used the opportunity to dig out dormant theories of harm and procedural tools. Read episode 4 of this series to find out more.
To round off our six-part series on Commissioner Vestager’s first term in style, senior Linklaters lawyers from Europe, the U.S. and China share their views on the impact of the Commission’s antitrust enforcement approach concerning digitalisation - past and future.
