Competition complaints and action for damages

The use of private litigation to remedy breaches of antitrust law is increasing across the globe. Many regulatory authorities actively encourage customers or competitors to bring actions for compensation against companies involved in cartels or other anti-competitive behaviour.

Managing competition litigation

Competition-based arguments are regularly used in civil proceedings as both a “shield” to justify a party’s conduct or a “sword” to prevent or terminate anti-competitive behaviour. These developments create new threats and opportunities for your business. Competition issues are moving towards the top of the corporate risk agenda but they can also provide commercial leverage and strategic advantage. As with any contentious situation, the key lies in developing a clear strategy from the outset.
