Plenary Session

Digital Markets Act: perspectives and challenges for private litigation

Wednesday 25th September h.15:00-15:45 (CET)

On the back of an ever-expanding antitrust litigation trend sweeping the EU, there are now growing indications of the interest from the plaintiff bar in bringing actions before national courts against gatekeepers, based on prior (designation and infringement) decisions by the European Commission pursuant to the DMA. Our session will aim at providing an overview and some critical reflections on some of the multiple issues and challenges within these unchartered litigation territories (such as jurisdictional aspects, standing, availability of collective/representative actions, interplay with public enforcement and with other provisions, available relief, quantification of damages etc.).
