At the first virtual event of the VUJ’s Specialist Group on Antitrust Law on 25 March 2021,  Dr. Natalie Harsdorf, Deputy Managing Director and Head of the Legal Department of the Federal Competition Authority, offered comprehensive insights into the current focus of the FCA’s activities.

Dr. Harsdorf spoke about the need to sharpen supervision over abuse, the need for higher scrutiny of bid rigging, and stated that dawn raids will not be suspended merely because of the pandemic.

The lively discussion was moderated by Dr. Erika Stark-Rittenauer (head of the specialist group on antitrust law) and RA Dr. Dieter Thalhammer (E+H).
