The understanding of Article 106 is vital to any competition lawyer working in Europe. Writing with first-hand experience, having formerly worked at the Directorate General, Buendia Sierra provides a detailed examination of this article and the law concerning exclusive rights and State monopolies.

The second edition of State Intervention and EU Competition Law (titled Exclusive Rights and State Monopolies under EC Law in its first edition) is expanded in scope to study the interface between Article 106 TFEU and State aid, the rules on public concessions, and public ownership and nationalization. New material is also included on public procurement and merger control, and there is increased coverage of specialised sectors such as telecommunications, TV, energy, transport, and postal services.

    The only up-to-date and in-depth work focussed on EU State Monopolies
  • Comprehensive analysis of the law surrounding Article 106 from an expert author with experience at the Directorate General
  • Includes further detail on telecommunications, energy, transport and postal services
  • A detailed reference tool for those dealing with increasing European state aid litigation around the topic of compensation for public services
