In 2014 the UK is dramatically reforming its competition regime. In addition to the abolition of the Office of Fair Trading and the establishment of the new Competition and Markets Authority, the Government has set out plans to reform the role of the courts. The UK Competition Law Regime is a practitioner-focused title that draws all these changes together and explains how the new regime will work in practice.

  • Describes and explains the new UK competition regime in light of the changes in the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013
  • Deals with all the principal areas of competition practice: mergers, cartels, abuse of dominance, vertical restraints, private actions
  • Provides insights into how the reformed authorities are likely to approach their roles
  • Highlights aspects of the new regime that deviate from the previous Office of Fair Trading/Competition Commission system
  • Goes through the new procedures that must be followed when contemplating a merger or where there are concerns about anticompetitive behaviour
  • Looks at the new Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) and identifies the provisions relating to its governance and decision-making powers
  • Details amendments to various procedural provisions of the Competition Act 1998 and the provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002 relating to mergers, markets and the cartel offence
  • Examines the role of the courts in private competition claims, including the expanding remit of the Competition Appeal Tribunal and the new opt-out regime for cartel damages claims
