Product description

The authoritative title Guide to Competition Law, 2nd edition explores the nuances of New Zealand’s competition law, which finds legislative expression in the Commerce Act 1986. Competition law attempts to ensure that the market is not endangered by the aggregation of economic power, monopolistic practices or concerted anti-competitive conduct between market participants.

This text will be of use to readers who want a better understanding of the competition law framework, and at the same time will provide an excellent primary reference tool for practitioners and other professionals who need a more detailed in-depth treatment of the subject matter.
