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 – published by Global Competition Review – 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 the latest edition of the Guide Günter Bauer and Robert Wagner lay out the scene for competition litigation in Austria.
