An increasing number of companies are introducing competition compliance programs to minimize risk, often as part of their strengthened Corporate Social Responsibility programs. Our competition practice team develops customized programs, manuals, whistle-blowing policies, and rules of employment, all localized for the Japanese market, and provides competition-related risk assessment. As part of such efforts, we often conduct on-site and/or electronic due diligence to verify competition law compliance, and carry out on-site mock dawn raids to maximize readiness.
For compliance programs to be truly effective, corporate officers and employees must obtain an actual, concrete understanding of the applicable regulations and guidelines. We offer compliance training tailored to the specific industries and actual contexts in which our clients operate.
