Described by many lawyers as the bible of New York practice, Siegel's Hornbook on New York Practice serves as the complete guide to civil practice in New York state courts, with a broad perspective in each subject. Used by students, lawyers, and judges alike and cited in thousands of New York cases, it discusses such topics as statutes of limitations, personal jurisdiction, appearance, venue, parties, papers, pleadings, motion practice, accelerated judgment, provisional remedies, disclosure, pretrial incidents, judgment, arbitration, and res judicata. The hornbook addresses pitfalls for practicing attorneys and judges. To eliminate the gap between what a student learns in law school and what a new lawyer actually needs to know in practice, the book starts from scratch on subjects, rather then assuming knowledge.

Big Data and Competition Policy

Author: Professor Maurice Stucke
Publisher:
ISBN: 0198788142
Release Date: 2016-08-02
Genre:

Big Data and Big Analytics are a big deal today. Big Data is playing a pivotal role in many companies' strategic decision-making. Companies are striving to acquire a 'data advantage' over rivals. Data-driven mergers are increasing. These data-driven business strategies and mergers raise significant implications for privacy, consumer protection and competition law. At the same time, European and United States' competition authorities are beginning to consider the implications of a data-driven economy on competition policy. In 2015, the European Commission launched a competition inquiry into the e-commerce sector and issued a statement of objections in its Google investigation. The implications of Big Data on competition policy will likely be a part of the mix. Big Data and Competition Policy is the first work to offer a detailed description of the important new issue of Big Data and explains how it relates to competition laws and policy, both in the EU and US. The book helps bring the reader quickly up to speed on what is Big Data, its competitive implications, the competition authorities' approach to data-driven mergers and business strategies, and their current approach's strengths and weaknesses. Written by two recognized leading experts in competition law, this accessible work offers practical guidance and theoretical discussion of the potential benefits (including data-driven efficiencies) and concerns for the practitioner, policy maker, and academic alike.
