Antitrust Chronicle – Arbitration & Antitrust

Dear Readers,

This month’s Antitrust Chronicle looks at the intersection of arbitration and competition law in the EU and internationally. Over the recent few years, arbitration has developed into a means for private enforcement of EU competition law claims. Although some early case law showed a certain reluctance to make use of arbitration clauses in competition law damage claims, a few EU jurisdictions have recently moved towards more arbitration friendly solutions. But what are some of the conditions and limitations?

These articles provide a variety of insights into how and why arbitration may an apt tool for the private enforcement of competition law claims in the EU and internationally. But there may be some recent legislative developments that could change the legal landscape. We have a great group of authors who provide their perspectives on antitrust and arbitration in the EU, Switzerland, and internationally.

Lastly, please take the opportunity to visit the CPI website and listen to our selection of Chronicle articles in audio form from such esteemed authors as Maureen Ohlhausen, Herbert Hovenkamp, Richard Gilbert, Nicholas Banasevic, Randal Picker, Giorgio Monti, Alison Jones, and William Kovacic among others. This is a convenient way for our readers to keep up with our recent and past articles on the go, in the gym, or at the beach.

As always, thank you to our great panel of authors.

Sincerely,

CPI Team
