Zoom Webinar | 18 June 2024 | 12:00 - 13:00

The Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers (DMCC) Act has received Royal Assent.

The Act overhauls the landscape for consumer law enforcement in the UK, giving the CMA the power to impose penalties up to 10% of global turnover for breaches of consumer law without going to court. It also creates a new regulatory regime for ‘big tech’ and upgrades the CMA’s competition enforcement powers. Navigating these changes can be a real challenge for businesses of all sizes. Our consumer and competition law experts are here to simplify these changes and help you understand what the Act means for you in practice.

We are delighted to invite you to our DMCC webinar, which is specially designed to help busy in-house legal counsel get ready for the new rules.
