An increasing number of companies are introducing competition compliance programs to minimize business risks, regardless of whether these companies have any prior records of antitrust violations. Our competition practice team develops compliance programs which are uniquely tailored to our clients' industries, methods of business development, and scale of risk. We also assist in drafting manuals, whistle-blowing policies and rules of employment, conducting competition law due diligence, and carrying out on-site mock dawn raids as part of such compliance programs.
Additionally, in order for compliance programs to be truly effective, corporate officers and employees need a reasonable understanding of the applicable competition regulations and guidelines, and of the conduct expected of them if they were to suspect any violation. We therefore offer compliance training tailored to the actual business environments in which our clients operate.
