SMEs and private enforcement of competition law: achieving redress

Burgess, Rachel (2016) SMEs and private enforcement of competition law: achieving redress. Global Competition Litigation Review (3). pp. 77-81. ISSN 1756-6002

In the area of competition law and policy, the law is intended to 'level the playing field' to provide all businesses with an equal opportunity to compete. But can competition law and policy be considered successful if the laws do not give all businesses an equal opportunity for redress if harm is suffered from a competition law breach?
