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 Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law, Revised Edition greatly expands coverage of related consumer and unfair competition laws.
