    Van Bael & Bellis lawyers’ contribution nominated for the 2022 Antitrust Writing Awards

    The article “The EU Commission publishes the draft revised Vertical Block Exemption Regulation and draft revised Guidelines on Vertical Restraints,” co-authored by VBB partners Andrzej Kmiecik and Andreas Reindl and associates Valérie Lefever and Margot Vogels, has been nominated for the 2022 Antitrust Writing Awards. VBB’s article has been nominated in the Best Business Article category, under “Concerted Practices”. The article sets out how the draft Vertical Block Exemption Regulation and draft revised Guidelines on Vertical Restraints would bring about a number of important changes to how the EU competition rules apply to a wide range of vertical agreements, affecting not only distribution systems for branded products but more broadly any form of vertical agreement in all sectors of the economy. The article provides a detailed analysis of the most important changes and their potential impact on market participants. You can vote for VBB’s article by clicking on this link. The winners will be announced in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, 5 April 2022.
