JONES DAY TALKS®: Private Antitrust Litigation in Europe: The Big Picture
Private enforcement actions relating to antitrust matters has increased dramatically across Europe in recent years, both as follow-on damages claims in reaction to governmental enforcement actions, or as standalone competition claims pursued in litigation and arbitration by private parties. Jones Day partners Jürgen Beninca and Nicholas Cotter discuss what is behind the escalation in cases, including the effects of the European Union's 2014 Damages Directive.
