1st anniversary of VBER: looking beyond the EU borders

To celebrate the one year anniversary of the EU Vertical Block Exemption Regulation (VBER), we organise an event during which we will compare the EU regime with Switzerland, the UK, Turkey and Serbia. We will rely on a Q&A format to make the comparison as practical and handy as possible.

Date: 11 May 2023 - 12:00-14:00 CET

Location: Online (via Teams). Teams link provided following registration.

Speakers: Bisera Andrijaševic; David Mamane; Gonenc Gurkaynak; Ros Kellaway; Karolien Francken; Kaat Aerts


11 May 2023

Start event: 12:00 CET

End event: 14:00 CET

Does RPM work in the same way in Switzerland? How does the Turkish Competition Act deal with dual distribution? Does shared exclusivity mean the same thing in the UK as in the EU? How about agency in Serbia? Things may look the same, but are they?

Practical answers to very practical questions delivered by:

  • Bisera Andrijaševic (Serbia - BDK Advokati);
  • David Mamane (Switzerland - Schellenberg Wittmer Ltd);
  • Gonenc Gurkaynak (Turkey - ELIG Gürkaynak Attorneys-at-Law);
  • Ros Kellaway (UK - Eversheds Sutherland);
  • Karolien Francken and Kaat Aerts (EU - Faros).
