"Vertical Agreements in EU Competition Law" praised in E.C.L.R.

We are happy to read that the third edition of our OUP book on "Vertical Agreements in EU Competition Law" is highly praised in the European Competition Law Review: “This is a work that every practitioner who may be faced with giving advice on vertical restraints in the EU should be familiar with. For the inexperienced, it provides a useful introduction, for the very experienced it provides a useful aide-menioire; and - more importantly - as a guidebook or road map it provides a useful step-by-step check list, which ensures that no oversights occur.” You can order your copy of the book here.
