These laws are complex, but they govern a broad range of business conduct: interaction with competitors; obtaining and maintaining a dominant market position; forming supplier and customer arrangements; participation in trade associations; conduct in joint ventures and corporate mergers and acquisitions. Whether your company is large or small, if it is considering forming a business alliance, moving into a new market, taking a new tack with its competitors, implementing new production, marketing or distribution strategy, or growing through corporate development, advice concerning the requirements of antitrust and competition laws is essential.
