Investigating, dissolving, and punishing cartels is increasingly a top priority for the European Commission and for national competition authourities. This work offers the most up-to-date and comprehensive examination of the substantive law and procedure of EU competition law as it applies to cartels as well as to other horizontal agreements. This unique work supplies the views of both private practitioners and public enforcers. The private practitioners discuss their day-to-day experience and share the insights which they believe their fellow-practitioners should be aware of.
