Private enforcement of antitrust law in France (June 2019 – Nov. 2019)

This new period is less rich in “big” decisions than the previous one, which had no less than three judgments from the Court of Justice of the European Union, but it is marked by several atypical decisions that may announce a diversification of litigation. Recurring questions also continue to pose challenges, such as those related to period of limitations, jurisdiction and access to documents.
