Discusses, with reference to UK and EU cases, changes to corporate group liability where a group member commits anti-competitive practices, and the importance of group-wide compliance. Reviews UK tortious liability for competition law breaches, how corporate governance developments interact with compliance issues, and how separate corporate personality and limited liability have developed. Examines how the single economic unit doctrine applies, the role of anchor defendants in cartel damages actions, and potential liability where parents assume control of a subsidiary's compliance strategy.
