Jurisdiction and Choice of Law in International Antitrust Law – A U.S. Perspective

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Hannah L. Buxbaum, Indiana University School of Law-Bloomington and Ralf Michaels, Duke University - School of Law have written on Jurisdiction and Choice of Law in International Antitrust Law – A U.S. Perspective.

ABSTRACT: This essay was written for a forthcoming book on international antitrust litigation in Europe. It provides a comparative perspective on the U.S. approach to the jurisdictional and choice-of-law issues raised in international antitrust litigation. The chapter examines personal jurisdiction over foreign defendants involved in anticompetitive conduct, as well as the question of applicable law in cross-border antitrust litigation -- including the possibility of applying foreign antitrust law. It also focuses on the intersection between antitrust claims and contract claims, and on the special conflict-of-laws issues that arise in the context of class actions.
