Litigating in France?

Published On 31/10/2014 | By Peta Stevenson | Litigation

Earlier this month we wrote about the introduction of a new class action regime in France which would permit duly authorised consumer associations to commence proceedings requesting damages for individual harm suffered by consumers placed in a similar or identical situation as a result of  anti-competitive practices.

Our colleague in Paris, Natasha Tardif and Marc Levy, have authored a chapter on the private enforcement of competition laws in France that looks in more depth at the process by which private parties may seek redress, both in unitary and collective actions.

Read their chapter here.
