We have a track record of successfully representing both domestic and international clients in all aspects of competition/antitrust matter including the most high-profile, challenging global transactions, international cartels which require multiple leniency/amnesty applications in many jurisdictions and anticompetitive conducts. In recent years, competition law enforcement is increasingly dynamic and involving cross-border coordination and sophisticated investigative approach. In addition, new issues are constantly debated globally against the backdrop of technological innovations.
