Europe, Middle East And Africa Antitrust Review 2020

GCR’s Europe, Middle East and Africa Antitrust Review 2020 is one of a series of regional reviews that deliver specialist intelligence and research to our readers – general counsel, government agencies and private practitioners – who must navigate the world’s increasingly complex competition regimes. Like its sister reports covering the Americas and the Asia-Pacific, this book provides an unparalleled annual update from competition enforcers and leading practitioners, on key developments in both public enforcement and private litigation. In addition to updates on the European Commission, Cyprus, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Norway, Romania, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, the United Kingdom, Ukraine, COMESA, Israel, Mauritius and Mozambique, this edition features a chapter on Angola, which launched its Competition Regulatory Authority in early 2019. In preparing this report, Global Competition Review has worked with leading competition lawyers and government officials. The latter group provides crucial perspective on the thinking behind cutting-edge matters such as the intersection of privacy, data and antitrust; ‘phygital’ retail distribution that combines brick-and-mortar with online sales; screening tools to detect collusion in public procurement; and much more.
