Competition litigation is a fast growing and complex area of commercial litigation that often requires coordination of strategy across jurisdictions. Baker & McKenzie's comprehensive guide provides a multi-jurisdictional perspective on the core issues arising when bringing or defending a private claim for damages resulting from a breach of competition law.
The guide offers an overview of the range of considerations to bear in mind when involved in such a litigation situation. Addressed are key questions around whether a right to claim has arisen at all - including whether a decision from a regulatory authority is required to bring a claim - and what measure of damages can be claimed if a cause of action has accrued. Additionally, the guide outlines more practical and procedural matters such as how lengthy or costly one might expect litigation to be.
