The growth in the digital economy both powerfully drives competition, but also provides challenges to global antitrust enforcement. This E-commerce Competition Enforcement Guide, edited by Claire Jeffs, 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 48 distinguished experts from 22 firms and 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 by Ronan Harty in his introduction, every remedy contains an element of ‘crystal ball-gazing’; enforcers need to look into the future and successfully predict outcomes. As such, practical guidance for both practitioners and regulators in navigating this challenging environment is critical. The Guide to Merger Remedies – published by Global Competition Review – is unique in providing this 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; and including 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. Drawing on the wisdom and expertise of 47 distinguished practitioners from 18 firms, the Guide draws 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.
