Private Damages and Class Actions
Some of our most highly read articles early last year were on the subjects of class actions and private damages. New legislations were passed in Europe, Australia or United Kingdom ever since to empower consumers to claim full restitution for the damages suffered from antitrust violations. We thought it would be a valuable idea to take a look at the topic now and find out if these legislations were as effective as were supposed to be and if the new ones contain the necessary elements to unfold its true power.
