A newcomer to the series of textbooks on European Union merger law, written by a referendary at the Court of Justice who had devoted his doctoral thesis to this field and who perpetuates an analysis that favours a double economic and legal prism, perfectly justified in view of the characteristics of the subject.

This handbook provides a pedagogical approach to the control of mergers and acquisitions in the European Union. It enables readers to understand the economic origins of European competition law and thus to grasp the real fundamental legal and economic issues raised by its implementation throughout the European Commission’s merger control procedure and during the judicial review of its decisions by the judges of the Union in Luxembourg.

With many clear references to the fascinating history of the adoption of European competition rules and insights into US antitrust law, the book seeks a stimulating balance between theory and practice that will be of interest to students wishing to specialise, corporate lawyers and lawyers, judges and regulators, and journalists.
