About this title

Synopsis:

'This Handbook on private enforcement of competition law is both conceptual and enormously practical. It explains by facts and figures why private enforcement is necessary, and it explores cultural and contextual differences that may suggest different designs. The handbook provides a thorough anatomy of US private actions, following which experts from 19 other jurisdictions explain the contours and practicalities of bringing, litigating and settling private actions in their jurisdictions. The handbook promises to make an enormous contribution to antitrust law and policy around the world.'
- Eleanor Fox, New York University School of Law

'This comprehensive and well written volume surveys the private enforcement provisions of virtually every country in the world that has a competition law recognizing private actions. It is a first-of-its-kind, incredibly valuable undertaking. In addition to individual country surveys this book includes valuable comparative studies of private enforcement as well as theoretical and empirical analysis of its effects. Every competition lawyer with a multinational practice will benefit from owning it.'
- Herbert Hovenkamp, University of Iowa


With the international community on the brink of an explosion of private remedies for violation of national competition laws, this timely Handbook provides state-of-the-art analysis of the private enforcement of competition laws across the globe. Private enforcement of antitrust is becoming a significant component of competition policy laws worldwide; today, more than a hundred jurisdictions have adopted market regimes operating within a framework of competition law, providing a varied base for developing ways by which persons injured by anticompetitive conduct will (or will not) be able to obtain remedies.

Written primarily from the perspective of the complainant, the Handbook contributes to the discussion by presenting empirical research on private remedies through unprecedented, detailed and systematic analysis of private antitrust enforcement in the USA. The expert contributors - law practitioners in the USA and 21 other countries - explain both the law and the realities regarding private remedies as they have experienced them. They provide useful information to law and policy makers contemplating the introduction or expansion of private enforcement and to competition advocacy NGOs, attorneys and others who may wish to support or utilize the tools of private enforcement. By way of conclusion, valuable observations are imparted and recommendations prescribed.

This important Handbook will prove an invaluable reference tool for a wide-ranging audience including: international private practice lawyers, law academics and students with a special interest in competition policy, international government officials involved in legislation or regulation of private remedies in countries with competition laws, and economists consulting in competition cases.
