This fully updated second edition of European Competition Law: A Case Commentary explains EU competition law by presenting the relevant legal provisions together with carefully selected case extracts pertaining to those provisions. The selection is based on the interpretative value of the extracts and is limited to the essentials in order to clearly demonstrate how competition rules have been interpreted by the European Commission and the courts. The extracts originate primarily from the decisions of the European Commission and judgments of the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights.

Key features include:
  • Updated extracts from newly arisen cases and documents on EU competition law
  • Article-by-article overview of EU competition law jurisprudence
  • Unique structure enabling users to quickly locate decisions and judgments on all relevant procedural and substantive aspects of EU competition law
  • Concise and judiciously selected extracts from the judgments in the most important and most instructive cases
  • A nuanced view of competition law rules provided through the use of extracts rather than author analysis, giving practitioners a more contextual insight
  • Greater number of case extracts than other books, giving a more complete picture of the way rules translate into European jurisprudence.
This unique book is designed for everyday use by practitioners and academics who wish to better understand how competition rules are interpreted in practice, and as a starting point for legal analysis. The book also serves as a handy resource on the exact wording of the essential elements of the most important cases. It will appeal not only to practitioners and academics, but also to all competition authorities in Europe.

‘This book is unique. It does not contain any text from the authors themselves, but the story of EU competition law is entirely told through a smart selection of quotes from the Commission and EU courts. This approach is extremely valuable. The article by article categorization and the extensive index ensure that influential cases are found quickly and easily. This book should be on the desk of every competition authority official and practitioner.’
– Alexander Italianer, Director-General for Competition, European Commission, Belgium

‘A remarkable work; for each article of the relevant legislation – covering not only the core competition provisions but also State aid and the Charter on Fundamental Rights – the editors have extracted relevant passages from the mass of EU jurisprudence and then presented them in a structured fashion that is easy to navigate. This book will provide an invaluable tool for the busy practitioner – and for judges too.’
– Sir Peter Roth, President, UK Competition Appeal Tribunal

‘This book explains European Union competition law in detail, not by means of learned commentary by expert authors, but by actual quotes from relevant passages chosen and extracted from the massive body of EU jurisprudence. In adopting this virtually unique approach, the two editors, together with nine other contributors, have produced rather a prodigious feat of scholarly research here ... If you are involved professionally in advising on any aspect of EU competition law, this book should definitely be in your professional library.’
– The Barrister Magazine
