It is an enlarged and updated fifth edition of the highly practical guide to the leading cases of European competition law. This fifth edition focuses on Article 101 TFEU, Article 102 TFEU and the European Merger Regulation. In addition it explores the public and private enforcement of competition law, the intersection between intellectual property rights and competition law, the application of competition law to state action and state aid laws. Each chapter begins with an introduction which outlines the relevant laws, regulations and guidelines for each of the topics, setting the analytical foundations for the case entries. Within this framework, cases are reviewed in summary form, accompanied by analysis and commentary. Praise for the book 'This book should be in the library of every competition law practitioner and academic. The summary of cases is first class. But what makes it really stand out is the quality of the commentary and the selection of the material which includes not only the most important European judgements and decisions but also some of the leading cases from the US and European Member States.' Ali Nikpay, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP 'The study of EU Competition law requires the analysis and understanding of a number of increasingly complex European Commission and European Court decisions. Through the provision of case summaries, excerpts from the important passages and concise commentary linking these decisions to other key case law and Commission documents, this unique and impressive book, now in its fifth edition, provides the student and practitioner of EU competition law with an extremely clear and useful introduction to these leading decisions.' Dr Kathryn McMahon, Associate Professor, School of Law, University of Warwick 'This book is especially valuable for competition law specialists in Europe and abroad who are interested in the jurisprudence and policy of the European Union and its member states. Familiarity with the European regime is essential for proficiency in competition law today, and this volume provides an excellent foundation.' William E Kovacic, Global Competition Professor of Law and Policy, George Washington University Law School, Former Chairman, US Federal Trade Commission 'The Guide is an invaluable tool for both students and practitioners. It provides a compact overview on the fundamental cases and highlights the essential problems in a clear and sharp analysis.'

The Law and Economics of Article 102 TFEU is a comprehensive, integrated treatment of the legal and economic principles that underpin the application of Article 102 TFEU to the behaviour of dominant firms. Traditional concerns of monopoly behaviour, such as predatory pricing, refusals to deal, excessive pricing, tying and bundling, discount practices and unlawful discrimination are treated in detail through a review of the applicable economic principles, the case law and decisional practice and more recent economic and legal writings. In addition, the major constituent elements of Article 102 TFEU, such as market definition, dominance, effect on trade and applicable remedies are considered at length. Jointly authored by a lawyer and an economist, The Law and Economics of Article 102 TFEU contains an integrated approach to the legal and economic principles that frame policy in this major area of competition law. Although written primarily with practitioners and in-house lawyers in mind, it is essential reading for anyone with an interest in competition law enforcement against monopoly behaviour. Reviews of the First Edition: This is a truly outstanding book?With regard to many issues, the authors..achieve an analytical depth which is not even matched by many journal contributions dealing exclusively with those particular subjects?a truly seminal book on Article 82 EC that should and will have a major impact on the further development of this area of EC competition law. The book not only deserves to but certainly also will be widely read by academic and practising lawyers and economists concerned with abuse control. Thomas Eilmansberger Common Market Law Review Vol 44. No 4 Being the first book dedicated to this subject, The Law and Economics of Article 82 EC sets the benchmark very high for any followers?a comprehensive study that adopts a fresh method to the consideration of Art.82 EC?One of the strongest features is perhaps the fact that the economics discussion contains hardly any equations and thus is absolutely accessible to non-economists?The Law and Economics of Article 82 EC can be thought of as saving the reader from having recourse to two separate books by combining the law and economics of Art.82 EC in a coherent framework without leaving anything essential out?a seminal guide for all those interested in Art.82 EC. Pinar Akman The Journal of Business Law March 2007 The text is lucid and there is a wealth of references to economic and legal materials and explanations in careful and substantial footnotes. I found answers to many questions I had not even thought of asking. The work is critical as well as practical?A second edition will be demanded soon after the Commission publishes its intentions next year. This scholarly, practical and very substantial work is warmly welcome. Valentine Korah World Competition Law and Economics Review June 2007 ...this book is one of the best I have come across?the first to thoroughly integrate the economic and legal discussions into a single text?an essential book for any practice dealing in competition law. I would also suggest that it should find its way into university and vocational training law libraries where?a better overall understanding of Art.82 will accrue. Philip Allery European Competition Law Review 2007 This book is an admirable achievement, and the authors are to be congratulated on producing a work of high class and great interest. It is handsomely produced, easy to read, and comprehensive in its scope. Its publication now is timely, as we await the next stage of the Commission's review of Article 82?a first-rate piece of work that will be highly influential in the years ahead and that will be gratefully referred to by everyone interested in this fascinating but difficult topic. It is very highly recommended. Richard Whish Competition Policy International Journal Autumn 2006, Vol. 2, No. 2 La structure de l'ouvrage, qui analyse consécutivement les notions de définition de marché, de position dominante, les différents abus et leurs remà ̈des, est classique. Le contenu, en revanche, est engagé? O'Donoghue et Padilla font ?uvre de décomposition minutieuse et sans réel précédent du droit des pratiques unilatérales. Translation from the French :The structure of the book is classic. It analyses the concepts of definition of the market, of dominant position, of the various abuses and their remedies.

Public Procurement and the EU Competition Rules

Public procurement and competition law are both important fields of EU law and policy, intimately intertwined in the creation of the internal market. Hitherto their close connection has been noted, but not closely examined. This work is the most comprehensive attempt to date to explain the many ways in which these fields, often considered independent of one another, interact and overlap in the creation of the internal market. This process of convergence between competition and public procurement law is particularly apparent in the 2014 Directives on public procurement, which consolidate the principle of competition in terms very close to those advanced by the author in the first edition. This second edition builds upon this approach and continues to ask how competition law principles inform and condition public procurement rules, and whether the latter (in their revised form) are adequate to ensure that competition is not distorted. The second edition also deepens the analysis of the market behaviour of the public buyer from a competition perspective. Proceeding through a careful assessment of the general rules of competition and public procurement, the book constantly tests the efficacy of these rules against a standard of the proper functioning of undistorted competition in the market for public procurement. It also traces the increasing relevance of competition considerations in the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union and sets out criteria and recommendations to continue influencing the development of EU Economic Law.
