Whish and Bailey's Competition Law is the definitive textbook on this subject. An authoritative treatment of competition law is paired with an easy-to-follow writing style to make this comprehensive guide essential reading for law students, practitioners, and officials. The authors explain the purpose of competition policy, introduce the reader to key concepts and techniques in competition law, and provide insights into the numerous issues that arise when analysing market behaviour. Describing the law in its economic and market context, they particularly consider the competition law implications of business phenomena such as distribution agreements, licences of intellectual property rights, cartels, joint ventures, and mergers. The book assimilates a wide variety of resources, including judgments, decisions, guidelines, and periodical literature. This definitive guide to competition law is regularly used in universities, law firms, economic consultancies, competition authorities and courts.
