Research Handbook on Private Enforcement of Competition Law in the EU (Research Handbooks in Competition Law series)
The Research Handbook on Private Enforcement of Competition Law in the EU provides wide-ranging coverage of a key aspect of competition law enforcement which is undergoing constant and rapid growth in significance. The Handbook examines the private enforcement of competition law across the EU and beyond, shedding light on pertinent and underlying issues.
This Research Handbook brings different perspectives into the dialogue, curating contributions from judges, academics and practitioners. As a whole, the Handbook delivers a deft exploration of strategies to successfully enforce rights across the EU and encompasses discussion and scrutiny of legal instruments, institutional developments, key litigation issues and judicial practice. It delivers contemporary and comparative reflection on developments in practice, including the impact of the Antitrust Damages directive, and the impact of a range of CJEU case-law.
Organised into three main sections covering general issues, key aspects relating to private enforcement, and the experience of enforcement in key jurisdictions, this rigorous and engaging Research Handbook will be an invaluable resource for scholars, advanced students and practitioners.
