Publication – Lexology Getting the Deal Through: Private Antitrust Litigation 2020 (Spain)

22/10/2019

The prestigious publisher Lexology Getting The Deal Through has just released the third edition of its Private Antitrust Litigation guide, in which our firm has once again collaborated. The Spanish jurisdiction chapter has been prepared by our partners Pedro Suárez and Antonio de Mariano and our associate Javier Pérez Fernández.

This guide provides practical answers to both procedural and substantive issues raised by competition law claims (also known as “private enforcement”), such as cartels or abuses of dominance, including claims for damages. In the specific case of Spain, this area is in full legislative and jurisprudential development, especially as a result of the recent transposition of Directive 2014/104/EU (the Damage Directive), and its application remains particularly complex and novel for lawyers, judges and economists. Spain is nevertheless beginning to position itself as a reference jurisdiction at European level, with an increasing number of claims being litigated here.
