Useful to practicing lawyers and regulators throughout Europe, The Law and Economics of Article 82 EC is a comprehensive, integrated treatment of the legal and economic principles that underpin the application of Article 82 EC to the behavior of dominant firms.

In addition, the major constituent elements of Article 82, such as market definition, dominance, effect on trade, and applicable remedies are considered at length. Jointly authored by a lawyer and an economist, The Law and Economics of Article 82 EC contains an integrated approach to the legal and economic principles that frame competition policy in this major area of competition policy. The Law and Economics of Article 82 EC is the first comprehensive practitioners guide to Article 82 EC, and is essential reading for anyone with an interest in competition law enforcement against monopoly behavior.
