Frank Wijckmans and Luc Peeperkorn share views on new VBER in ECLR


Faros partner, Frank Wijckmans, and Luc Peeperkorn (former Principal Advisor Antitrust Policy at European Commission), have co-authored an insightful article in the prestigious European Competition Law Review. The article delves into the new European rules on vertical agreements (the “VBER”).

What you may expect:

  • Policy perspective: How does the new VBER fit within the policy shift from a form-based to a more effects-based approach that emerged at the turn of the century? 
  • Key changes and their impact: What are the noteworthy modifications compared to the 2010 rules, particularly regarding online platforms and retail parity obligations? 
  • Devil in the detail: Is it because things seem similar that they effectively are?

For those interested in reading the full article, you can find it in Issue 4 of ECLR, or access it on Westlaw:
