Private competition litigation has spread across the globe, raising specific, complex questions in each jurisdiction. The implementation of the EU Damages Directive in the Member States has furthered the ability of victims of anticompetitive conduct to seek compensation, even as US courts tighten the standards for forming a class action.
The Private Litigation Guide explores in depth key themes such as territoriality, causation and proof of damages that are common to competition litigation around the world with jurisdictional overviews and Q&As.
In this chapter, Wolf Theiss experts lay out the scene for competition litigation in countries such as Austria, including a detailed breakdown of key information for practitioners.
As the editors of this publication note, ‘litigating antitrust or competition claims has become a global matter, requiring coordination among jurisdictions, and requiring counsel and clients to understand the rules and procedures in many different countries and how the approaches of courts differ as to key issues.’
The full chapter on Q&A for Austria is available via the link in the upper left hand corner of this page.
