Description

Whish and Bailey's Competition Law is the definitive textbook on this subject. The authors explain the purpose of competition policy, introduce the reader to key concepts and techniques in competition law and provide insights into the numerous different issues that arise when analysing market behaviour. Describing the law in its economic and market context, they particularly consider the competition law implications of business phenomena, including distribution agreements, licences of intellectual property rights, cartels, joint ventures, and mergers. The book assimilates a wide variety of resources, including judgments, decisions, guidelines, and periodical literature. An authoritative treatment of competition law is paired with an easy-to-follow writing style to make this book a comprehensive guide to the subject, regularly used in universities, law firms, economic consultancies, competition authorities, and courts. Clear, detailed, and analytical, this is an unparalleled guide and stand-alone resource on competition law.show more

Review quote

An excellent text, providing all one needs on the main areas of competition law. The authors bring superb knowledge and insight into the subject. * Howard Johnson, Professional Tutor, Cardiff University * The book is a remarkable achievement; technical enough to be used by practitioners for "real-life" cases, while still sufficiently general to give one a sense of perspective. * Antoine Winckler, Partner, Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton *show more
