NEW DELHI, INDIA--(Marketwire - Jun 1, 2012) - Suzanne Rab, a partner with King & Spalding, has authored a new book that covers the first-ever critical analysis of Indian competition law in an international comparative context. The book, Indian Competition Law: An International Perspective, was published this week by CCH India, a Wolters Kluwer company.
Thomas Abraham, managing director, CCH India, stated, "At a time when investors are looking at opportunities in emerging markets, the book is a must-have for those contemplating inbound investments and also cross-border activities affecting India."
Rab's book brings out the comparison of the new Indian competition regime with key global antitrust jurisdictions, traces its development and outlines the intent. The book is a practical tool for practitioners in antitrust/competition law, in-house counsel, academics and businesses alike. It will even prove helpful to a layman seeking to understand the complex web of competition law. The international dimension covered in the book through notes and comparisons with EU, UK and US legislation on which the new Indian competition laws are based provides a greater understanding of the local and international antitrust regime.
