Keeping up with technological developments has become a moving target for regulators and companies in Europe and beyond. While often in the driver seat of those developments, companies increasingly face the challenge of finding their way through a complex multidisciplinary legal landscape. Enforcement authorities and courts, in turn, must tailor existing rules in each case to ever-changing technology. The resulting legal uncertainty poses additional public and private enforcement risks to technology-intensive businesses. Where public enforcement authorities are ineffective, individuals often represented by powerful consumer organisations or litigation funders bring collective court actions to protect their own rights.
In this Master Class, Geert Potjewijd, Axel Arnbak and Salima Guettache will:
• update participants on the current legal frameworks governing technology and look at future developments
• discuss the latest public cases of data enforcement by public authorities as well as private class actions by claim foundations that seek rewards of up to EUR 10 billion
• explore how competition, consumer and financial sector authorities increasingly seek to supervise data processing activities, either separately or jointly with data protection authorities
• share their insights on how technology-intensive companies can effectively minimise public and private enforcement and litigation exposure.
