The Antitrust Review of the Americas 2016

Introduction

27 August 2015

Competition law enforcement spans the globe with active enforcement on every major continent. Over 100 countries have competition laws and competition law enforcement agencies. With an ever-­growing number of companies operating in or selling into multiple countries, the competition laws of multiple jurisdictions concern a large and expanding group of potential subjects – companies routinely face merger reviews in several countries and their business practices and conduct can be subject to simultaneous civil or criminal investigations. As a result, it has become increasingly important for lawyers and government enforcers to become familiar with the competition laws and enforcement practices of countries throughout the world.
