Private Damage Actions Related to European Competition Law in Italy

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Claudio Tesauro and Dario Ruggiero (both Bonelli Erede Pappalardo Law Firm) explain Private Damage Actions Related to European Competition Law in Italy.

ABSTRACT: Competition law based civil claims are brought, in Italy, by competitors rather than consumers. In addition to the recently approved ‘collective action', some other initiatives could be taken in order to improve effectiveness of private actions. An example of these initiativese might be the ‘multiple damage’, already suggested by the ECJ in Manfredi and in the national follow up case.
