Antitrust laws are relevant to companies looking to expand, needing to defend themselves against attacks from competitors and antitrust agencies, and wanting to keep their businesses focused on commercial issues rather than on litigation and seemingly endless investigations.
For those looking to expand, we help navigate the merger control and assessment process, highlighting the risks and opportunities. For companies defending themselves in the face of serious antitrust infringement allegations, our swift guidance can mean the difference between complete immunity and prison sentences and multimillion-dollar fines.
