Joseph F. Winterscheid was quoted on May 28 in Competition Law360 regarding China’s new anti-monopoly law, questioning how China’s hybrid economy will affect the new antitrust law. "Applying free market competition, capital market type rules, and overlaying that on the Chinese economy gives rise to heightened uncertainty. It’s going to be very important to see how much independence the Chinese competition authority has," he said. The transition period will require companies to ramp up their attention to local issues and to build relationships with local experts. "You have to take into account local nuance. You have to have your eye on the global view, but in execution, in tactics, you need to be sensitive to the local. It's going to be critically important for firms to be guided by local experts that are up to the minute on enforcement developments and local customs," he said.
