Digital platforms and companies have transformed the world in ways no other industry has done before in such dramatic ways. However, these platforms have transitioned from alternative channels to major players (and often, the only players) in many sectors of the economy, raising antitrust issues. Joining me for this conversation are two experts, Robert Klotz and Ciara Barbu-O’Connor, and we’re exploring how the European Commission is regulating the rise of tech giants.
Robert Klotz is a partner in the Antitrust & Competition Practice Group in Sheppard Mullin’s Brussels office. Robert concentrates on all aspects of EU and German competition and regulatory law and represents clients before the European Commission and national authorities, with a particular focus on network industries, such as energy, telecommunications, post and transport.
Ciara Barbu-O'Connor is an associate in the Antitrust and Competition Practice Group in Sheppard Mullin’s Brussels office. She is a member of the firm’s EU Competition & Regulatory practice and advises on all aspects of European, UK and Belgian competition law, including mergers, cartels, abuse of dominance as well as State aid across all sectors and industries.
