EU Competition Law
An Analytical Guide to the Leading Cases - Second Edition
Ariel Ezrachi    

This book is designed as a working tool for the study and practice of European Competition Law. It is an enlarged and updated second edition of the highly practical guide to the leading cases of European Competition Law, first published in 2008.
This second edition focuses primarily on Article 101 TFEU (Ex Article 81 EC), Article 102 TFEU (Ex Article 82 EC) 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 and the application of Competition Law to State action.
Each chapter begins with an introduction which outlines the relevant laws, regulations and guidelines for each of the topics, providing the analytical framework for the case entries that follow. The case entries are then set out is summary form, accompanied by analysis and commentary.

'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, Senior Director, Cartels and Mergers, Office of Fair Trading

'The study of EU Competition law requires the analysis and understanding of a number of increasingly complex and lengthy 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 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

'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.'
Dr Christoph Voelk, Antitrust Practice Group, McDermott, Will & Emery LLP, Brussels

'The leading cases constitute the heart of EU's competition law. Ariel Ezrachi has made an excellent selection of cases in his book, comprehensive but at the same time balanced and not overburdening. His own comments are concise and very much to the point.'
Professor Ulf Bernitz, IECL, The University of Oxford
