This year, for the first time, the GCR handbook includes a chapter on the use of economics in the European Union. Copenhagen Economics has interviewed representatives from the European Union and a large number of Brussels-based law practices, all of whom recognizes that the use of economics has increased significantly in recent years, particularly in merger cases.
Some lawyers, however, question whether this trend has an actual effect on the outcome of competition case as economists run into complex challenges and tensions, and thus may fail to make a significant contribution to the case. Naturally, this poses a need for economists to step up their game in order to make their involvement be of greater value to the legal community.
The Handbook of Competition Economics is published by the Global Competition Review (GCR). Its expert-written specialist intelligence and research provides unique insights into, and analysis of, current and future competition economics trends.
