This conference honours the memory of the late Professor Vedran Šoljan (1962-2008), one of Croatia’s competition law pioneers.

It traditionally offers a platform for discussion about recent developments in the area of EU and national competition law. It has a particular focus on the countries of Central and East Europe (CEE) and South-East Europe (SEE). 

This year a keynote speech, on the topic of antitrust goals, will be given by Professor Spencer Weber Waller, Loyola University Chicago.

This year’s agenda includes topics such as the goals of competition law, institutional resilience and competition authorities, judicial review, private enforcement of competition law by consumers, and abuse of dominance. In addition, compliance workshops will address practical issues of drafting competition law complaints, challenging infringement decisions, and drafting antitrust damages claims.
