Bilingual case workshops devoted to antitrust analysis of information exchange

On June 14, 2023, the Association, together with Frontier Economics and Allen & Overy, organized a half-day, bilingual case study workshop on antitrust analysis of information exchange. 

The workshop was preceded by a presentation on the economic and legal aspects of information exchange, given by Mette Alfter of Frontier Economics and Marta Sendrowicz of Allen & Overy. In the second part of the meeting, participants were divided into three groups, in which they solved a case study from the perspective of:

  • the antitrust authority – this group was led by Jacek Mainardi of Allen & Overy and Marcin Waligóra of Frontier Economics;
  • the undertaking participating in an exchange of information – this group (somewhat paradoxically, but very effectively) was chaired by Nikodem Szadkowski of UOKiK; and
  • the undertaking potentially affected by the information exchange – this group was chaired by Mette Alfter of Frontier Economics.

In the last part of the meeting, the groups reported their findings and Prof. Małgorzata Knauff of UOKiK and Olga Wisniewska-Lukasiuk of Allen & Overy evaluated the results of the groups’ work.

The discussion showed that a convincing analysis of the effects of information exchange requires coherent argumentation – also from the point of view of business realities and economic theory. Attached below is the state of facts in the case study solved during this workshop.
