Antitrust & Competition Laws In Asia Pacific.

Legal News & Analysis – Asia Pacific – Competition & Antitrust

12 August, 2015

 

 

Baker & McKenzie’s 2015 Asia Pacific Antitrust & Competition Law Guidebook brings together a summary of commentary on competition laws from 13 Asia Pacific jurisdictions.

 

Since releasing the first guidebook in 2013, emerging and developed countries in Asia continue to amend their competition laws as local and global markets evolve. Mature competition law jurisdictions such as Australia and Japan have reviewed and added amendments, while other emerging Asia Pacific jurisdictions in terms of competition laws such as the Philippines, New Zealand and Thailand, among others, have submitted new policies and amendments to prohibit anti-competitive practices in their relevant markets. With all of these reforms, local and global businesses are more keen in following these developments and learning about new competition regulations in Asia Pacific. All of these developments are covered in this guidebook.

 

While we have done our very best to ensure currency and accuracy as at the date of publication, laws and regulations can often change on short notice.

GLOBAL GUIDE TO COMPETITION LITIGATION 2015

 

As competition policies and rules evolve around the world, businesses are increasingly turning to private litigation  for recourse against anti-competitive practices. In the third edition of Baker & McKenzie’s Competition Litigation Guide, we provide comprehensive information and a multijurisdictional perspective to help you bring — or defend against — a private claim in 25 key jurisdictions.

 

Through the guide, our leading global team — ranked among the top by Global Competition Review and Chambers and Partners — addresses critical questions on competition litigation, including

 

• When does a right to claim arise?
• Is a regulator’s decision required to bring a follow-on action?
• What measure of damages can be claimed?
• How lengthy or costly could proceedings be?
• What are other potential options for relief or private enforcement.
