Through the expert assessment of the US federal courts’ case on competition law, alongside that of domestic Europe, Arianna Andreangeli provides a fresh response to the issues surrounding collective litigation. The discussion is skillfully placed in the wider context of competition enforcement, whilst at the same time exploring both past and present trends. The book concludes that collective litigation of competition claims must strike a “fair balance” between respecting rules of due process and ensuring fuller access to justice.

Critical Acclaim
‘This book is a timely and thought-provoking comparative analysis of collective redress in different legal regimes. It will be of interest to both academics and practitioners who seek an understanding of current class action issues. It benefits from the author's expert knowledge of US and EU law as well as Dutch and Italian law. The diversity of jurisdictions and the author's findings, especially with regard to US class actions, challenge common assumptions and provide material for further discussion.’
– Dr Sebastian Peyer, Global Competition Litigation Review
