US Antitrust Investigations: Issues For Asian Companies
December 2006/January 2007
The article explains how the U.S. government investigates antitrust crimes, noting that the increased volume of commerce into the U.S. from countries such as China and India is likely to lead to more Asian companies becoming ensnared in U.S. criminal antitrust investigations, and the civil litigation that inevitably follows. The article recommends that Asian companies develop programs to ensure compliance in order to avoid being caught in a U.S. Department of Justice investigation, and retain experienced counsel if they nevertheless come under investigation.
