Merger Remedies in American and European Union Competition Law

January 2004

Edward Elgar Publishing

This volume presents a comparative analysis of merger remedies in the EU and USA, motivated by the fact that a growing number of mergers are being scrutinized and reviewed under both jurisdictions. Merger remedies on either side of the Atlantic play an increasingly important role in the implementation of public policy with regard to the economic concentration of industry.

The book provides an understanding of merger remedies in general, and of procedural and substantive differences in the approach of the EU and the US. The editors have gathered together leading European and American practitioners and scholars to comprehensively discuss this issue. They aim to help policymakers decide if, and how, current practices can be improved, and to help firms and their counsel better prepare cases and predict outcomes.

Edited by François Lévêque, Professor of Law and Economics, Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Paris, France and Howard Shelanski, Professor of Law, School of Law, University of California, Berkeley
