Price Gouging in Europe: Excessive pricing in and beyond the pandemic era
Reed Smith antitrust lawyers focus on the situation around price gouging (excessive pricing) in the EU, France, Germany and the UK. Max Seuster, Lucile Chneiweiss, Ross Mackenzie and Tilman Siebert from our Brussels, Paris, London, and Munich offices (respectively), give an overview of the laws and explain what the rules are. They will discuss how the COVID-19 crisis has changed enforcement by authorities and describe what businesses can do to protect themselves against such practices. This is the last of a three-part podcast series relating to price gouging. Part 1 discussed U.S. price gouging laws and Part 2 addressed price gouging rules in the People’s Republic of China and Hong Kong.
