about this item

At a time when there is considerable debate about antitrust litigation in the European Union, and the legal framework is constantly evolving, this book provides a comprehensive exploration of the legal basis for private antitrust enforcement, drawing comparisons within the European Union (EU) and between EU law and United States (US) law.In light of important recent developments in this area of law, this is a timely and significantly revised new edition of an authoritative text. It offers a detailed comparative analysis of jurisdictions across the EU and their treatment of private antitrust enforcement, and positions the private enforcement of European Community (EC) competition law in the broader context of effectiveness of Community law. It also offers a full and clear introduction to all the key issues of law and practice that arise in private antitrust litigation in the US, and dispels many European misconceptions of US enforcement procedure, while emphasizing the lessons that can be drawn from the American system. Topics covered include foundations of private enforcement, remedy principles and competition rules, prudential limits on private actions, enforcement pluralism in the Community system, limits on permissible private plaintiffs, and calculation of damages. The book's theoretical approach is supplemented by a practical consideration of available procedures and remedies.
