An Introduction to Competition Law

Second Edition

By Piet Jan Slot, Martin Farley

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