CONFERENCE - DEMAIN LA CONCURRENCE - PARIS

Private enforcement: Will the wave be coming from Brussels, London, Paris or... elsewhere? (New Frontiers of Antitrust, Paris, 22 February 2013)

This third roundtable of the conference “New frontiers of Antitrust” (Paris, 22th of February 2013) was dedicated to "Private Enforcement, the wave does come from Brussels, London, Paris or elsewhere? ". In the first contribution, Laurence Idot, professor at the Paris II University, provides us with an overview of the latest European developments and denounces a rise of the forum shopping.
