Collective dominance: An overview of EU and national case law

1. Introduction The last special issue on collective dominance, by Nicolas Petit and Norman Neyrinck in October 2011, [1] focussed mainly on the requirement of dominance. The authors provided a comprehensive overview of the application of EU law to the concept of collective dominance in merger control cases at a national level. To complement this earlier work, I propose to use this opportunity to discuss another aspect of collective dominance, namely the concept of “collective entity”, the other prerequisite to establishing collective dominance. The concept of collective dominance presupposes that legal entities that are independent for certain competition law purposes – because they do not constitute a single economic unit – can be regarded as a joint entity for other purposes.
