“Much has been written about the potential demise of EU competition law enforcement since the enactment of the Lisbon Treaty.  However, those fears are unjustified, especially given the fact the EU stands stronger and is now larger with its 28 Member States.  Admittedly, the Lisbon Treaty does not contain the language of former Article 3(1)(g) of the EC Treaty, which provided as a goal of the Community, “a system ensuring that competition in the internal market is not distorted.”  But in the place of this language, the Lisbon Treaty includes a legally binding protocol confirming that the internal market, which remains a priority of the Lisbon Treaty, includes a system ensuring that competition is not distorted.

Convergence between EU and national governments on competition law and enforcement policies may be taking a step back, as far as the Commission is concerned. In its unique way, ECL continues to reflect the areas of convergence and divergence that emerge going forward.”  ECL provides a fast, easy way to understand and evaluate the competition laws of the 28 Member States. 

Topics addressed include:

  • Authoritative, comprehensive analysis of the competition laws of the European Union and its Member States

  • Practice-oriented, state-specific guidance from leading practitioners in their Member States

  • Practice-oriented guidance on all phases of investigation, systems of notification, appeals and potential penalties

  • Detailed coverage of horizontal and vertical commercial agreements, cartels, joint ventures, intellectual property licensing, abuse of dominant position and merger control

  • Profiles of cooperation among competition authorities

With the ECL treatise, readers will be able to analyze systematically the benefits and risks of filing (or defending) antitrust complaints under Article 101 or 102, or national competition rules, throughout the 28 Member States.
