This book provides a clear explanation of US antitrust law for the non- US lawyer. It is written from the perspective of a UK or EU reader who needs to know about US law in order to predict issues that may arise, but doesn't need the law in sufficient detail to practise there. It also takes a comparative approach, citing similarities and differences to existing UK and EU competition law throughout. * Puts unfamiliar US law in context for the non-US practitioner * Helps the non-US lawyer predict when and where antitrust issues will arise * Explains legislation and case law * Provides just what a non-US reader needs to know with no unnecessary detail - a practical guide rather than academic commentary * Highlights where US law differs from UK/EU law and where it is similar * Features a glossary of unfamiliar US-specific legal terms * The author is ideally placed to write this work as head of the Antitrust team at a major US law firm CONTENTS: Overview and History of Antitrust Enforcement.
