London partner Matthew Hall co-hosted the December 9 episode of the Our Curious Amalgam podcast on the topic “So What’s The Loss? An Economist’s Take on Private Antitrust Litigation Outside the U.S.”
The podcast discusses how the amount of private antitrust litigation outside the U.S. continues to increase dramatically. This is no longer confined to the traditional jurisdictions of the UK, Germany and the Netherlands, but is now worldwide. Follow-on claims, which rely on a regulatory decision to prove an infringement, and stand-alone claims, where the infringement must be shown, are common. In the EU, virtually every cartel decision by a regulator is now followed by a damages claim from customers. However, cartel damages claims are far from the only types of claim being brought.
