Private competition litigation has spread across the globe, raising specific, complex questions in each jurisdiction. The implementation of the EU Damages Directive in the Member States has furthered the ability of victims of anticompetitive conduct to seek compensation, even as US courts tighten the standards for forming a class action.
The Private Litigation Guide – published by Global Competition Review – includes a section exploring in depth the key themes such as territoriality, causation and proof of damages, that are common to competition litigation around the world. Part 2 contains invaluable summaries of how competition litigation operates in individual jurisdictions, in an accessible question-and-answer manner. Beyond the established sites such as the US, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK, experts lay out the scene for competition litigation in countries such as China, Mexico and Israel.
As the editors of this publication note, ‘litigating antitrust or competition claims has become a global matter, requiring coordination among jurisdictions, and requiring counsel and clients to understand the rules and procedures in many different countries and how the approaches of courts differ as to key issues.’
The growth in the digital economy powerfully drives competition, but also adds to the complexity of global antitrust enforcement. The second edition of the E-commerce Competition Enforcement Guide, edited by Claire Jeffs of Slaughter and May, looks at whether established competition tools are sufficient to deal with the challenges of the online world. Drawing on the collective wisdom and expertise of more than 40 distinguished experts from 14 firms and seven competition authorities, the Guide provides insight on the differing approaches adopted by enforcement agencies and whether a balance is being struck between maintaining a vigilant approach to the digital economy and allowing competition to flourish.
Successfully remedying the potential anticompetitive effects of a merger can be more of an art than a science. Not only is every deal specific, but, as noted in the introduction, every remedy contains an element of ‘crystal ball-gazing’; enforcers must look into the future and successfully predict outcomes.
As such, practical guidance for both practitioners and regulators in navigating this challenging environment is critical. This second edition of the Merger Remedies Guide – published by Global Competition Review – provides such detailed guidance and analysis. It examines remedies throughout their life cycle: from the fundamental principles; to the remedies available; through how remedies are structured and implemented; to how enforcers ensure compliance. Insights from around the world, ranging from Brazil to China, supplement the global analysis to inform the reality of multi-jurisdictional deals.
The Guide draws not only on the wisdom and expertise of 46 distinguished practitioners from 18 firms, but also the perspective of current and former enforcers Pablo Trevisán, Daniel Ducore and Diana Moss. It brings together unparalleled proficiency in the field and provides essential guidance for all competition professionals.
The Guide to Energy Market Manipulation is the first of its kind in surveying a new and complex form of regulation that applies to one of the most important industry sectors in the world.
