Sheppard Mullin's Nota Bene

Mar 3, 2021

Joining me this week for the podcast quarterly check in with Europe is International Competition specialist Oliver Heinisch from London.  We discuss the “New Europe,” tracking immediate impacts of Brexit on the United Kingdom (UK) and European Union (EU), and forecast the near-term future, from a legal and regulatory standpoint impacting international business.  We also discuss the European Union’s Digital Markets Act, making its way through the legislative process in Brussels, but already enacted in Germany, Europe’s largest market.  

Oliver is a partner in the Antitrust and Competition Practice Group in Sheppard Mullin’s London and Brussels offices. Oliver advises on all areas of EU, UK and German competition law with a focus on international cartel and abuse of dominance procedures including related antitrust litigation matters as well as merger control law. He also regularly advises clients on questions relating to the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.

What We Discussed in This Episode:

  • How was President Biden’s presentation at the G7 summit received by other countries?
  • What are the latest updates on Brexit? How will the UK continue to develop it’s economy as it exits the European Union?
  • What about antitrust law in the European Union and the UK? Will there be any similarities in regulation and enforcement? Any differences?
  • Will financial sectors grow in strength in the UK in the upcoming years?
  • What is the UK doing to attract and keep European multinational companies doing business in the UK?
  • Is there likely to be collaboration between the UK and the EU on issues like free trade?
  • How are nations in the EU and the UK driving advancements in the digital markets?
  • What are the criticisms of the Digital Markets Act?
