Antitrust compliance is becoming more complex and costly. Joint investigations between local authorities are increasingly frequent and enforcement, more aggressive. As penalties become more punitive, cartel members race to self-report violations and obtain amnesty.
Baker & McKenzie can help navigate shifting antitrust and competition policies worldwide with precision and ease. We have the systems and standards — and over 300 Antitrust lawyers and professionals — to carry out the most complex, cross-border compliance strategies. We were the first law firm to successfully coordinate multijurisdictional merger filings and have since facilitated some of the largest global mergers.
Our global team, located in 53 offices, swiftly coordinates the first steps toward amnesty, conducting internal investigations without breaching privilege and privacy laws so that leniency applications remain credible and sound. And with fluent knowledge of procedural rules and legal systems in 44 countries, we have a good track record of achieving results for clients during dawn raids, criminal proceedings and high profile private antitrust lawsuits.
