The competition law landscape has undergone unprecedented developments in the Asia Pacific region over the past decade. With most jurisdictions now having sector-wide laws in force, competition law is now a priority compliance area for all businesses with operations in the region.

Competition law and policy fundamentally impacts on many essential business practices and functions, regardless of industry. This includes day to day operations as well as core commercial strategies - from pricing, distribution and supply chain management to industry collaborations and deal-making.

Our lawyers will provide a practical hands-on guide to navigating an increasingly complex operating environment, in a series of live and on-demand formats. Our Essentials program will cover how to spot the key competition law risks from a multi-jurisdictional perspective, with on-the-ground insights from our teams across Asia Pacific.
