"Ninety percent of U.S. antitrust enforcement is generated through private actions, and the class action is perhaps the primary mechanism through which private actors seek to enforce the antitrust laws. Antitrust class actions have been subject to significantly increased focus and scrutiny, particularly over the last decade, in light of the large numbers of class actions that followed on significant government cartel prosecutions during that time period. With this increased focus, class action law and procedure are becoming an unavoidable fact of life for antitrust practitioners. This first edition of the Antitrust Class Actions Handbook will be a vital reference for both new and experienced antitrust practitioners navigating the class action thicket. The book is intended as a comprehensive discussion of the issues that arise before, during, and after the filing of an antitrust class action. It considers the issues and challenges faced by both plaintiffs and defendants to such actions, and focuses on both the evolving legal standards as well as the strategic decisions that guide these highly complex cases." - from the publisher
