The Competition Law Report provides insight into how enforcers across the globe see issues that will be critical to future growth or recovery and to avoiding dangerous competition pitfalls that have often marked past economic downturns.
HOUSTON (PRWEB) April 16, 2020
Lex Mundi, in conjunction with members of its Lex Mundi Antitrust and Competition Practice Group, has published the Lex Mundi Global Competition Law Report.
Bringing together local and regional expertise of more than 20 Lex Mundi member law firms, this Law Report has been created to provide in-house counsel with thoughtful insight and analysis on current global competition law. It draws on the expertise of members on-the-ground to provide an understanding of salient legal issues including:
- Vertical Merger Trends
- Labor & Employment and Competition Law
- Digitization and Competition Law
The relevance of each legal issue varies depending on the region, but consultation with each jurisdiction was important to understand the global status of the topics addressed in the Law Report. As in-house legal teams navigate forward during this unchartered COVID-19 pandemic, this inaugural edition of the publication provides valuable and practical guidance for their organizations.
Barbara Sicalides, Partner at Pepper Hamilton (Lex Mundi member firm for USA, Pennsylvania) and Co-editor of the Report comments, “In tough economic times like these, competition law enforcement agencies will make use of all the tools in their toolkits to ensure that companies do not use COVID-19 to harm competition or as an excuse to harm competition. Despite not having a crystal ball when we chose our subjects, the Competition Law Report provides insight into how enforcers across the globe see issues that will be critical to future growth or recovery and to avoiding dangerous competition pitfalls that have often marked past economic downturns.”
