2015 Antitrust Year in Review

American Bar Association Section of International Law | AUGUST 18, 2016

Editor's Note

Welcome to the 2015 Antitrust Year in Review, a compilation of the latest antitrust/competition law developments in 27 jurisdictions worldwide. Each contribution offers commentary on significant developments taking place across a number of areas, including legislation, mergers, cartels and anticompetitive practices, abuses of dominant position and court decisions. This is the International Antitrust Law Committee's 10th edition of the Year in Review, which debuted in 2006.

Some highlights that you'll see in this year's edition are the latest reports on the auto-parts cases; trends in cases involving the telecom and media industries; legislative amendments to improve private access, including the UK's new class action regime; and analysis of mergers involving everything from beer, to biomedical life sciences businesses, to heavy machinery, to telecom, to hospitals, and everything in between.

The 2015 Year in Review is the culmination of a great deal of work on the part of our authors and our editorial team. A great deal of thanks is also due to the staff and students at WeirFoulds LLP for their assistance in producing this tome.

We hope this publication affords a valuable tool for understanding the growing role of antitrust/competition law across the globe.
