As courts and arbitrators function daily as front line decision-makers applying EU competition law, this book reflects on a variety of issues related to the litigation and arbitration of cases in this field. It provides expert analysis from perspectives of substance, procedure, fundamental rights, as well as inter-institutional dialogue and coherence. Featuring a range of scholarly contributions, the essays address topics including the 2014 EU ‘Damages Directive’; the EU’s approach to the ‘collective redress’ concept; a range of issues concerning state aid law; the arbitrability of competition law issues and other matters related to arbitration in this context such as judicial review of arbitral awards; and the interplay between arbitral proceedings and competition agency investigations.
