This work contains the papers of the Twelfth Conference on “Antitrust between EU Law and national law”, held in Treviso on May 19 and 20, 2016 under the patronage of the European Lawyers Union – Union des Avocats Européens (UAE), the Associazione Italiana per la Tutela della Concorrenza – the Italian section of the Ligue Internationale du Droit de la Concurrence (LIDC) –, the Associazione Italiana Giuristi di Impresa (AIGI), the European Company Lawyers Association (ECLA), and the Associazione Antitrust Italiana (AAI). Some of the papers have been extensively reviewed and updated by the authors prior to publication.
Contributions contained in this volume are the result of an in-depth analysis and study of the most salient issues arising from the application of antitrust rules, carried out by experienced and high-ranking professionals, in-house lawyers, academics and EU/national and international institutional representatives who attended the Conference.
They deal with extremely topical issues, lying at the heart of current antitrust debate. Some of the most contemporary topics include those relative to the private antitrust enforcement after the approval of the Directive 2014/104/EU, and to the antitrust compliance programs. Ample consideration is also given to recent developments in the field of new technologies and the related antitrust issues.
This volume also includes some precious insights on the relations between antitrust and regulation, as well as issues concerning recent developments in EU Merger control.
