About Jurisdiction and Judgments in Relation to EU Competition Law Claims

This book sets out the way that, through enhanced private antitrust enforcement reform, private international law has a pivotal role in EU competition law disputes with an international element. The author offers a thorough analysis of the post-2003 policy of the EU favouring private law enforcement of EU competition law and its implementation under the existing provisions for jurisdiction and recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments under the Brussels I regime. The book also considers how the jurisdiction, recognition and enforcement of judgments issues are dealt with in England under the common law rules applicable when Brussels I does not apply. The complex private international law problems in respect of cross-border class actions that have arisen in several countries, as well as judgments in relation to antitrust infringements, are also discussed. The author further examines the choice of law issues that may arise before the English courts under Rome I and Rome II. The potential problems regarding jurisdiction of arbitral tribunals and choice of law in arbitral proceedings in relation to EU competition law claims, and the jurisdiction of English courts in proceedings ancillary to arbitration claims, are dealt with accordingly.

Reviews

“Danov draws upon an impressive range of academic, policy and practitioner sources. There is no other book-length treatment of the nexus between competition law and private international law, and practitioners, academics and advanced students from a number of different substantive fields should take something from it.” –  Kathryn Wright, European Law Review, Volume 37

“The book provides an excellent critical analysis of the important challenges to which judges, practitioners, and business decision-makers are confronted with regard to concurrent proceedings in EU competition law and the attempt to solve them through the application of private international law principles.

Dr Danov's remarkable study offers a lot of food for thought and an excellent background reading for those interested in deepening the analysis further.

” –  Ioannis Lianos, World Competition Law and Economics Review 34(3)

“Danov has succeeded in writing a book that is both intellectually thorough enough to be able to play a significant role in shaping future academic debate as well as sufficiently practical enough to provide a source of inspiration for policy makers.” –  Jan-Jaap Kuipers, The Common Market Law Review, Volume 48-4
