Competition Trade & Regulatory

Competition, Trade & Regulatory - China

Work with China’s most distinguished antitrust and competition lawyers

Across Europe, China and Australia, regulatory authorities are now exercising a broad range of powers to investigate commercial arrangements between competitors, distributors and suppliers, cartels, mergers, and abuses of dominant market positions. Companies are treading carefully preparing and planning ahead for impending regulatory reforms. It is now more important than ever to ensure that your competition law compliance affairs are in order. 

We know the law in this area in China inside out. We were one of the first law firms in China to provide anti-monopoly related services and helped to draft China’s Anti-monopoly Law (AML). The Chinese antitrust regime is very young but the AML is already proving vital to the Chinese market economy. And its importance is rapidly increasing as China improves its legal system and market economy.
