    Brian Hartnett and Will Sparks of Squire Patton Boggs explore the implications of the EU's new Antitrust Damages Directive in Corporate Livewire Magazine’s Expert Guide on Competition & Antitrust. On 26 November 2014, the European Union adopted Directive 2014/104 EU governing private damages claims in the EU. Member States have until 27 December 2016 to implement the Directive which, in essence, seeks to harmonise the most important procedural rules governing access to compensation for antitrust infringements throughout the EU, they write.
