This book is a comprehensive guide for practitioners covering all aspects of competition litigation in the UK. It draws on the vast combined experience in the field of the barristers at Brick Court Chambers, one of the two leading sets for competition law. It covers practice and procedure in the UK courts and Competition Appeal Tribunal in the recognised transactional style of court books. It offers unparalleled depth and quality of analysis of court procedure. All aspects of case work are covered, including commencement of proceedings, jurisdiction, statements of case, disclosure, evidential issues, privilege and confidentiality, hearings, intervention, remedies, quantum issues, costs, appeals, arbitration, mediation and criminal proceedings. It also considers a number of important developments such as the prospect of criminal proceedings under competition legislation (including the implications for individual prosecutions and extradition orders in light of Norris v Government of the United States of America & Ors [2008]), the potential application of the Commission’s White Paper on Damages actions for breach of the EC antitrust rules (COM(2008)165 final), and the impact of the wide-reaching competition provisions in the new ‘Rome II’ Regulation (Regulation (EC) No 864/2007 of July 2007 on the law applicable to non-contractual obligations).
