In 2017, the Danish Competition and Consumer Authority (DCCA) has gone through a major development with the creation of a new merger unit. Copenhagen Economics has interviewed prominent competition lawyers from 13 Danish law firms who find this organisational change an improvement as it will help ensure higher quality and more consistency in the handling of merger cases.
Another trend identified by Copenhagen Economics is the increasing demand for economic experts. With the implementation of the new EU Damage Directive, damage claims are on the rise. Most lawyers expect that this will create new possibilities for economic experts, specifically in competition cases.
The Handbook of Competition Economics is published by the Global Competition Review (GCR). Its expert-written specialist intelligence and research provides unique insights into, and analysis of, current and future competition economics trends.
