Chapter 4: Article 102 TFEU in the UK: victims of abuse go directly to court
This chapter analyses the recent cases of standalone actions for breaches of Article 102 TFEU in the UK courts. During the past few years, the UK Competition and Market Authority (CMA, formerly the Office for Fair Trade) and the sectoral regulators have adopted few decisions finding an infringement of Article 102 TFEU or its UK equivalent. On three recent occasions (i.e. Purple Parking v Heathrow Airport, Arriva v Luton Airport and Dahabshiil v Barclays Bank) firms have gone straight to court claiming to be the victim of abusive behaviours, rather than submitting a complaint to the CMA/OFT. Thus, the chapter analyses the recent trend in the increase in the number of standalone actions for breaches of Article 102 TFEU in the UK. Keywords: private enforcement; standalone claims; UK Competition and Market Authority; courts of England and Wales
