Global Antitrust Compliance
Antitrust and competition law concerns are best handled proactively, prior to the instigation of government investigations or civil litigation. Our global antitrust compliance attorneys work closely with our clients' in-house counsel, local counsel, and business professionals to find effective and practical compliance solutions to mitigate potential antitrust risks. Our team can provide legal, logistical, and technological support to create effective compliance programs that are tailored to your specific needs.
- The depth of our Antitrust/Competition practice and the experience of our attorneys allows Arnold & Porter to offer a wide range of compliance, audit, and training programs.
- Whether you are interested in company-wide compliance audits; review of existing written compliance programs; creation and implementation of specific antitrust/competition training programs; or simply consultation with respect to specific issues, our antitrust team can provide the necessary resources.
- We can assist you in structuring your operations to reduce competition/antitrust risks in a wide variety of substantive areas, including pricing, distribution, sales and marketing, joint ventures, licensing, group purchasing, lawful collaboration with competitors, standard setting, trade association, supply arrangements, customer programs, and other compliance issues.
- We have provided antitrust counseling and compliance audits for multi-national companies in countries around the world. Our US lawyers work closely with our European lawyers to ensure that our counseling meets the breadth of our clients' needs; and where appropriate, our attorneys will coordinate with local lawyers and outside consultants. We structure our work to minimize any disruptions to your day-to-day business operations.
