The California antitrust and unfair competition law derives from statutes, policies, concerns, and history unique to the state of California. This treatise comprehensively documents and describes this area of law which presents a broad and rich palette for practitioners and regulators. Highly experienced practitioners of differing perspectives were engaged to undertake a fresh, balanced and comprehensive review of each subject area of our state's antitrust and unfair competition laws. Teams of peer reviewers also drawn from the ranks of California's leading practitioners were tasked with the review of every chapter. Several new subject matters addressing the application of our antitrust and unfair competition laws to various industries were added, including health, regulated industries, electronic media and internet and labor. Additionally, there are chapters addressing joint ventures and franchises, pretrial and trial considerations, and attorney's fees and costs. Lastly, California State Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law, Revised Edition greatly expands coverage of related consumer and unfair competition laws.

Led by Editor-in-Chief, Cheryl Lee Johnson, deputy attorney general, California Department of Justice, Antitrust Division, a team of over 100 leading members of the Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law Section of the California State Bar brings you a balanced, comprehensive source that:
• Highlights application of state antitrust and unfair competition laws to the health care industry, Internet, insurance, labor market, telecommunications, energy and more
• Includes all of the latest-breaking developments regarding the Cartwright Act, Unfair Practices Act, Consumer Legal Remedies Act, the Unfair Competition Law plus Proposition 64 developments
• Covers class actions, indirect purchaser actions, standing and remedies under California state law
• Addresses procedural issues and recovery of costs and fees

More recently, topics included the context of joint ventures and defining the market players, and the issue of health care consolidation. In light of the broad reach of the Cartwright Act, attorneys can best be prepared with this resource if they have clients or organizations conducting business in the Golden State.
