Competition / Anti-Trust

China is becoming more and more active in enforcing its Anti-Monopoly Law. In addition, more than 100 other countries and regions have adopted competition law. The consequences of failing to comply with competition law are serious, both for companies themselves and, increasingly, the individuals working for them. Therefore, it is becoming increasingly vital for companies to effectively mitigate not only Chinese competition risks but also multinational competition risks.
