Facing what seems to be a revival of competition law enforcement and policy debate on the topic of excessive pharmaceutical prices on both sides of the Atlantic, we aim to bring together high-level stakeholders in this field including practitioners, in-house counsels, competition authorities and scholars. The notion of “unfair” or excessive prices has been enshrined in article 102 TFEU regarding exploitative pricing abuses by a dominant firm, although the application and enforcement of this has been rather limited in practice. Recent case law and an evolution of thought regarding competition law and legal-economics theories point however to a possible policy shift in this regard.
