Presentation

#UIABusinessLaw
10th Annual Business Law Forum
E-commerce & Platform Businesses:
Latest Legal Trends and Corporate & Manager Liability

Seminar presented by the UIA with the support of the Vienna Bar Council (Rechtsanwaltskammer Wien), the Austrian Bar Association, the ÖV Österreichische Vereinigung and The International League of Competition Law (LIDC)

This year, the UIA Business Law Forum will address the legal challenges related to e-commerce and platform economy. In the tradition of the UIA Business Law Forum the topic will be discussed from various legal perspectives, including of antitrust, unfair competition, data protection, labour and corporate, and even criminal – to name just a few.

This year's panel discussions will focus on the legal framework of e-commerce and platform companies and the challenges they face, as well as enforcement practices, with a particular focus on areas of convergence or even divergence in the law. We will also discuss liability issues for the e-commerce and platform industry, damages and whistleblowing hotlines. Last but not least, there will be a session on how to reduce regulatory and litigation risk, and why compliance should be taken seriously.
