This handbook is a practitioner’s guide to the new UK competition litigation regime. Competition litigation is expected to increase dramatically under this new system, and this work advises practitioners on every aspect of using it.
In particular, it focuses on the role, the practice and procedure of the Competition Appeal Tribunal, and the growing body of case law emerging from it. As a complete guide to the subject it also steers readers through the substantive law and other key topics such as human rights, judicial review and competition law in arbitration.
- The first work to be published offering expert commentary and practical advice on the new competition litigation regime
- Covers both the substantive law and the new procedures
- Offers timely information – from May 2004 the new EU Procedural Regulation greatly strengthens the powers of the UK national competition authorities
- Cross-referenced to the leading text on the subject, Bellamy & Child: EC Law of Competition, for more detailed discussion where appropriate
