Key features:

- Edited by leading academics and an experienced practitioner
- Combines both practical insight and scholarly analysis
- A rich compendium of commentary and analysis on all the main themes of competition law
- Extensive coverage of both substantive, procedural and enforcement issues in two volumes.

Handbook on European Competition Law: Substantive Aspects sets the context for examination of substantive law by reviewing and analyzing the goals of competition law. It then covers the substantive building blocks of EU competition law, including horizontal and vertical agreements, cartels, mergers, and also provides valuable coverage of the interaction between competition and regulation, hub and spoke collusion, and information exchange agreements. The importance of the abuse of dominance doctrine is reflected in three discrete chapters considering exploitative abuses, exclusionary pricing abuses, and exclusionary non-pricing abuses.

The companion volume, Handbook on European Competition Law: Enforcement and Procedure, sets out in detail the procedural aspects of EU Competition Law, ranging from fines, remedies and judicial review. It also gives unique insight into both private and public enforcement of completion law, and offers commentary on the relationship between EU competition law and national competition law, and on the relationship between competition law and private international law.

This Handbook will be an indispensable reference work for practitioners and scholars, as well as for those in an enforcement environment.
