Butterworths Competition Law and Foreign Investment Law Handbook, formerly known as Butterworths Competition Law Handbook, contains the principal UK and EU legislation relating to competition law, foreign direct investment and subsidy control, together with extensive coverage of European Commission guidelines, CMA and sectoral regulator guidelines, and UK and EU court materials. It has recently been restructured to make navigation easier, and now contains 11 Parts. The book has been renamed this year from Butterworths Competition Law Handbook to reflect the proliferation of foreign direct investment regulation and related materials in the UK and across Europe.
The Handbook presents the latest legislation and guidance in an easy-to-use format so you will be able to find information quickly and easily. It can be used as a standalone desktop reference. This is the essential reference source for lawyers, any firm of solicitors or in-house department that deals with competition law issues.
