Editorial Reviews

" eminently practical text that arrives at an opportune time when private enforcement of competition law claims before the courts and alternative dispute resolution fora is becoming increasingly important at both the national level as well as across the European Union moregenerally...This reviewer has no hesitation in recommending this book to anyone who practices UK competition law in whatever capacity with an interest in the litigious aspects of competition law more specifically. To be sure, it is essential reading for competition lawyers and will prove equallyuseful to barristers with a speciality in the field." --Gordon Blanke, Global Competition Litigation Review
