Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Philip Marsden (BIICL) and Ioannis Kokkoris (University of Redding - Law) describe The Role of Competition and State Aid Policy in Financial and Monetary Law

ABSTRACT: During the financial crisis, companies and lenders found themselves in distressed situations. Competition authorities across the globe had to deal with controversial issues such as the application of the ‘failing firm’ defence in merger transactions as well as assessment of emergency aid granted by states.
