An important and contentious aspect of these auctions is the bidding process and the opportunities it creates for collusive behaviour amongst property developers.  We’ve written about this issue quite a bit before.  See, as examples: So we thought we’d up-date you on the latest safeguard against anti-competitive ... market research, surveys and trends

The Crucial Role of Competition Law and Policy in the New Europe
Let me begin by offering thanks: first, that the IBA has organized this timely conference, and second, that it has asked me to share my thoughts on the crucial role of competition law and policy in the new Europe.
