BILA is pleased to welcome back Bill Batchelor, a partner of Skadden Arps, to bring us up-to-date on the work of the competition team of the UK Financial Conduct Authority. This will include an examination of the FCA’s findings, published in February this year, from their market study which commenced in 2017. Bill will look at questions left unanswered by the FCA, compliance pointers and lessons for the insurance sector. Bill will also expand his talk to look at other hot antitrust topics for the industry including the FCA’s first eye-opening competition law fine for information exchange, demonstrating the slippery slope from market intelligence to cartel conduct, as well as antitrust compliance for facilities, big data and Insurtech.
Edward W. (Bill) Batchelor has 20 years of EU and U.K. competition law experience and focuses his practice on conduct investigations, including abuse of dominance, cartels and vertical agreements.
