Editorial Reviews

Review from previous edition: "It should be emphasised that Competition Law of the EC and UK achieves a level of depth and comprehensiveness that goes far beyond what can normally be expected from a students' textbook. Its well-arranged tables of contents, tables of cases and decisions, aswell as its comprehensive index, render this book very handy and reader friendly. It therefore also serves as a quick and reliable reference guide for competition law veterans and practitioners, to whom I can strongly recommend this book." --E.C.L.R - Issue 1, 2009 Dr Volker Soyez, Partner, Lorenz
