Anti-trust and Competition
Anti-trust laws are developing rapidly worldwide. Authorities are increasingly using a wide range of powers to investigate mergers, cartels, the contractual relationship between competitors, suppliers and distributors, and the alleged abuse of a dominant position in the market.
Consequently, the tightening contol and an increasing number of investigations by the regulatory bodies and the government leads to the increase of complex laws and the risk of the violations of such laws. Industry-wide anti-trust investigations by the authorities become increasingly common and are becoming more extensive, lengthy and complex, and handling them may require the company significant time and financial costs.
