How substantive competition rules are enforced plays a crucial role in achieving their goals. This thoughtful book examines procedural issues that have arisen from the increased enforcement of competition law worldwide.

Such issues are reviewed by expert contributors in Europe and around the globe. Special attention is paid to certain rights including the right to be heard, the right to defence, the right to protection of business secrets and the right to judicial review. The overarching structure of the book proposes an agenda for the solution of procedural fairness within competition proceedings for the future.

This astute work will be a useful point of reference for scholars, practitioners and policy makers alike, who will benefit from the critical insight into how best to attain procedural fairness in the enforcement of competition law.
Critical Acclaim
‘This book definitely makes an interesting and useful contribution for academic discussion and provides food for thought for law-makers.’
– European Competition Law Review

‘The book contains a varied and thought-provoking set of contributions very useful to the debate on the topic of striking the right balance between effectiveness of competition law enforcement and right to due process. The book is also of great interest to practitioners for the wealth of references to cases and legal arguments used before courts to challenge the fairness of competition law proceedings.’
– The Competition Law Observatory

‘Overall the book is well structured, containing considerable detail and analysis that is supported by case law. It covers a variety of procedural fairness issues in several different contexts both domestically and at an international competition law level. . . it provides some fresh insight for practitioners, researchers and policy makers alike and is a useful window into an area of competition law that deserves attention.''
– Competition and Consumer Law Journal
