Competition Damages Actions in the EU

Law and Practice, Second Edition

2nd edition

Elgar Competition Law and Practice series

David Ashton, Secretariat of the Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection, European Parliament, Brussels

In this revised and much expanded second edition David Ashton provides a comprehensive review of the EU damages directive (Directive 2014/104/EU) and its implementation, bringing the book up to date with the latest advances in EU Competition Law damages actions. This edition also features insights from practising lawyers on national developments in over 10 countries across Europe and an updated, separately authored, chapter on the quantification of loss. This book will provide practising lawyers and scholars alike with a clear, well-structured and updated guide to EU Competition Law Damages.

‘The Author fully achieves the objective of the book. It provides a clear discussion of the main aspects of competition law damages actions with a comparative angle. It is clearly written and well researched. Contributions from some of the main EU jurisdictions enrich this valuable work. It is highly recommended.’
– Riccardo Sciaudone, The Competition Law Observatory (CLO)

‘This is a useful book. It is a good outline of the issues and law for the practitioner who may be faced with mounting (or defending) such a claim. . . it is a useful reference for an academic lawyer, or for the student. As an academic, I will add this to my courses’ reading lists.'
– Global Competition Litigation Review

‘The author and his team of contributors are to be congratulated on this excellent work, which is accessible to both the practitioner and the scholar.’
– Matthew O’Regan, Competition Law Journal
