This comprehensive research Handbook brings together cutting-edge legal and economic analysis into antitrust issues by leading experts from Europe, the USA, Canada, Mexico and South America. The Handbook of Research in Trans-Atlantic Antitrust covers a wide-range of areas including:

* unilateral effects
* private and criminal enforcement
* implementing competition policy in regulated sectors
* abuse of intellectual property rights
* competition remedies
* international enforcement cooperation
* complainants' rights
* dominant firm pricing
* tying and bundling.
The Handbook also includes discursive consideration of the similarities and differences among the various regimes on either side of the Atlantic, as well as a look to future trends and applications in regional and global contexts.
Offering a comparative view of pressing antitrust issues, this Handbook will be of great interest to academics, lawyers, practitioners and officials.
