Antimonopoly and Antitrust Trends: What to Expect in 2014

A new antimonopoly and antitrust enforcement environment is emerging with far-reaching impact on companies doing business in China. As a result, both foreign and domestic companies face an increasingly complex enforcement environment for anti-corruption claims but also for anti-competitive claims for cartel activities, distribution restraints by companies with market power (and how defined), and excessive pricing. What developments have emerged over the past six months and what should companies expect in 2014?

Please join us in Shanghai as Hugh Bangasser and Amy Sommers, partners at K&L Gates, discuss recent Antimonopoly Law (AML), anti-corruption, and antitrust enforcement trends. They will also discuss how companies can mitigate risk in an uncertain enforcement environment and best practices for responding to investigations.
