Dominance and other Unilateral Conduct
Enforcers around the world have shown a renewed interest in investigating and sanctioning conduct that amounts to an abuse of market power. In Japan, private monopolization and unfair trade practices constitute the two main types of conduct that is typically investigated by the JFTC. In line with the global trend, the JFTC is becoming more and more active in this area, and in a number of recent cases is investigating similar conduct as other leading foreign competition authorities, as often the practices in question are cross-border and in many cases even global.
AMT has a wealth of experience in this practice area both in relation to domestic cases and in some of the largest and most complex investigations spanning many jurisdictions.
