A Practitioner's guide to Norwegian competition law
During past decade, Competition Law has increasingly come to the forefront of commercial legal practice. Large fines levied by European and national regulators that were once rare are now commonplace. Norwegian enforcement is gaining momentum too and the new merger notification thresholds under the revised Competition Act of 2014 will require more detailed merger notifications to be made. More than ever before, Competition Law is a field which can have significant consequences on the business model of a company as it is the Competition Law regulations that dictate the manner in which a company may, or may not behave in its dealings with customers, competitors and suppliers.
In this book we present the framework of Competition Law in Norway specifically and in the EEA generally. This initial overview is supplemented by a concise summary of recent and leading decisional practice from the European Commission, the EU courts, the EFTA Surveillance Authority and the Norwegian Competition Authority
