Welcome to this new compendium on EU business law with a strong focus on competition rules (including the prohibition of anti-competitive practices and merger control).
European Union business law is a progressive construction. It incorporates the rights of the Member States and has thus become an essential component of French law. In addition to the provisions of the Treaty, the case-law of the Court of Justice and a multitude of instruments of secondary and soft law have been added, which this book aims to present in a clear, organised and concise manner. The authors adopt a "privatist" approach, presenting business law from the point of view of its users, i.e. from the point of view of economic actors. The book thus presents the rules relating to the development of trade (free movement and prohibition of anti-competitive practices), then those applicable to operations on the internal market (distribution, intellectual property, electronic commerce and the European judicial area) and concludes with an analysis of the rules relating to the development of businesses (European company law and merger control).
