RGD Supports Conference on Antitrust Law

On May 28, Moscow hosted a thematic conference titled "Antitrust Law: Towards a New Level," which was organized by the leading Russian legal news outlet Pravo.ru. Experts together with FAS representatives discussed trends in the antimonopoly industry, assessed the work of parallel import and international co-operation with the EAEU and BRICS+ countries.


Nato Tskhakaya, Partner and Head of Regulatory Practice at Rybalkin, Gortsunyan, Dyakin and Partners law firm (RGD), moderated a session on competition in the digital space. Nato noted that despite the ongoing geopolitical events, competition in the domestic market remains very high and is being impacted by Big Data which is now unregulated.


The antitrust laws have gained greater relevance due to the shift to more digitally-driven interactions between buyers and sellers, and the introduction of sanctions has spurred the development of antimonopoly compliance, making this conference a timely and crucial event for legal professionals and industry experts.


Ilya Kozhevnikov, Associate at RGD’s Regulatory Practice, spoke about how to identify antitrust risks for digital platforms. In particular, he shared approaches to defining product boundaries, and also discussed the regulator's assessment of the network effect and its impact on some services of IT companies.


Through a vibrant exchange of experiences and a dynamic discussion, industry experts collaboratively formulated basic mechanisms for managing competitive risks.
