Global Competition Law - A Practitioner’s Guide

Louis Vogel

As its name suggests, Global Competition Law is a Practioner’s Guide. Its aim is not to present a scientific and exhaustive table of most of the world’s competition laws, in particular, those of the European Union and its Member States, but rather to present their salient aspects by providing the practitioner with an overview of their structure and most characteristic elements.

For that reason, the plan employed is the same for all countries, with a few adjustments sometimes required because of the specific nature of the laws in question; the rules relating to unfair conduct do not feature, except where they are integrated into the country’s competition law, and those relating to anticompetitive practices (restrictive agreements and abuse of dominant position or monopolizations) are examined first, followed by those pertaining to the control of concentrations.

Although Global Competition Law is primarily a practical guide, it also provides some general insights with regard to future developments. The aim of this book is to present most of the world’s competition laws’s salient aspects by providing the practitioner with an overview of their structure and their most characteristic elements.
