EU Competition Law Volume I, Procedure: Antitrust - Merger - State Aid
With the adoption of Regulation 1/2003 at the end of 2002 and Regulation 773/2004 in April 2004, the procedures organising the enforcement of Community EU law, at both the national and Community level, have undergone a major transformation. In particular, these reforms have made Articles 81 and 82 directly applicable in full, changed the manner in which undertakings might get legal security regarding their agreements and provide for a much greater role in Community competition law enforcement for national competition authorities. This title gives a complete working guide to these new procedures as well as a detailed examination of Court jurisprudence in this complex and important area of law. This entirely new title looks at the new EU Competition Procedures following the reform in 2003. It provides a working guide to dealing with the Commission, national competition authorities and the courts. This book provides practicioners and academics with a clear and comprehensive guide in this field.
