The growth in the digital economy powerfully drives competition, but also adds to the complexity of global antitrust enforcement. The second edition of the E-commerce Competition Enforcement Guide, edited by Claire Jeffs of Slaughter and May, looks at whether established competition tools are sufficient to deal with the challenges of the online world. Drawing on the collective wisdom and expertise of more than 40 distinguished experts from 14 firms and seven competition authorities, the Guide provides insight on the differing approaches adopted by enforcement agencies and whether a balance is being struck between maintaining a vigilant approach to the digital economy and allowing competition to flourish.
