    The concept of a single continuous infringement (" SCI ") enables competition authorities to consider a series of agreements or conducts that have the same objective to distort competition in the market as one single continuous infringement. Similar to the approach in the European Union, the Turkish Competition Authority ( Authority ) also considers this concept while assessing a case under Article 4 of Law No 4054 on the Protection of Competition of 13 December 1994 ( Law No 4054 ), which is akin to-if not the same as-Article 101 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union ( TFEU ).

  • Arbitrators’ Liability: Austrian Supreme Court Reconfirms Strict Standards

    One of the main advantages of arbitration vis-à-vis state court litigation, is that the parties are free to choose independent and highly specialised experts to decide their cases. Yet, if these experts negligently (or even deliberately) violate the duties that come with the acceptance of the appointment, the issue of liability arises. read more...
