EU Overview in Public Competition Enforcement Review

July 10, 2017

By Frédéric Louis, Anne Vallery

Frédéric Louis and Anne Vallery highlight a few  of the significant developments, touching upon all aspects of European Commission enforcement of the TFEU antitrust rules, under the supervision of the EU courts in Luxembourg, that took place over the past year. The authors also discuss in greater detail two issues relating to Article 101 TFEU enforcement, namely the concept of infringement by object and what it means for the Commission's burden of proof, and the limits of the single continuous complex infringement (SCCI) concept as it applies to fringe participants in a cartel.
