An Introduction to Competition Law
This book is intended to serve as a first acquaintance with competition law. The book aims to reach a broad range of readers: students, teachers in further and higher education, officials and practising lawyers who are not usually faced with competition law issues in their working lives. This second edition has been fully updated in the light of the latest developments. It covers both EU and UK competition law along with an introduction to the EU rules on State Aid. An important function of this book is to provide an insight into the combined system of EU and UK competition law. Therefore, a broad range of examples have been provided for the three main subjects - the prohibition of cartels, the prohibition of the abuse of a position of dominance and the supervision of concentrations (ie mergers and acquisitions). Those examples are drawn from European and UK practice. This greatly enhances the explanation of the general principles, taking into account recent legislative and judicial developments.
