Abstract

This publication includes country reports on the implementation of the Damages Directive in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. These country reports are based on a conference organised at Würzburg University (Germany) on 5 May 2017.

After an introduction by the organiser of the conference (Florian Bien), the contributors give a brief overview of the state of private enforcement before and after implementation of the Directive in their Member States, and then discuss five discrete topics:

1. Disclosure of documents that lie in the control of the parties;
2. disclosure of evidence included in the file of a competition authority;
3. binding effect of decisions of national authorities;
4. limitation periods; and
5. the effect of consensual settlements on subsequent damages actions.

Keywords: Damages Directive, private enforcement, competition law, antitrust law, disclosure, limitation periods, consensual settlements

JEL Classification: K21, K13, K41, K42
