Antitrust Law in the United States and European Union: Key Differences

Sanford M. Pastroff and Tilman Kuhn

More than 120 countries have their own antitrust laws (known as competition laws or antimonopoly laws outside of the United States), and therefore a detailed comparison of global antitrust laws would be far beyond the scope of this article (and would probably induce sleep, or at least severe boredom). So, we focus on key differences between the United States and European Union. To limit the number of caveats and exceptions, we make several generalizations, which hopefully will steer you in the right direction and equip you with some antitrust lingo.
