Abstract

Suggests that, in general, competition law systems make insufficient provision for finding directors and managers liable for the losses caused by their decisions to engage in anti-competitive behaviour. Compares the remedies available against directors and managers under the antitrust regimes of the UK, Australia and Hong Kong. Suggests that a well-designed personal liability regime is preferable to a US-style criminal liability system.
