LEGAL PRACTICE: ANTI-COMPETITIVE PRACTICES - PROCEDURES - COMPENSATION - PASSING ON DEFENCE

Private enforcement of antitrust law in France (Sep. 2017 – Feb. 2018)

The decisions commented in this article confirm the main features of the private enforcement of antitrust law in France. It is still a varied litigation between businesses. In follow-on litigations, claimants experience some recurring problems regarding prescription and passing on defence. In the case of stand-alone litigation, the main legal issues before the courts seem, in fact, simpler. It appears easier thus for claimants to prevail.
