Competition law meets the new Civil Code


On 23 September Frank Wijckmans participated in a panel discussion at an all-day academic event organised by the University of Leuven (KUL) dedicated to the new Civil Code (the law of contractual obligations). His main role was to inject a practitioner's and competition law perspective.

Frank highlighted how the new rules on imprevision, general terms and conditions, abuse of circumstances and accession contracts would have an immediate impact on the negotiations regarding the annual agreements between the retail sector and the branded goods suppliers. He then focused on the new rules governing mitigation in case of the nullity of a contractual obligation.
