Private Litigation Guide - Third Edition

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 – explores in depth key themes such as territoriality, causation and proof of damages that are common to competition litigation around the world with jurisdictional overviews and Q&As. 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 Austria, China and Japan.

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.’

Merger Remedies Guide - Fourth Edition

Successfully remedying the potential anticompetitive effects of a merger can be more of an art than a science.

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 four jurisdictions around the world supplement the global analysis to inform the reality of multi-jurisdictional deals.

The Guide draws not only on the wisdom and expertise of 41 distinguished practitioners from 15 fi rms, but also the perspective of former enforcers Daniel Ducore and Diana Moss. It brings together unparalleled profi ciency in the fi eld and provides essential guidance for all competition professionals.
