2013 has seen a dramatic increase in enforcement activity by the Chinese antitrust authorities under the country’s Anti-Monopoly Law. In January, more than US$50 million in fines were meted out to six multinationals for engaging in an alleged price-fixing cartel. In August, more than US$100 million in fines were imposed on several international companies for allegedly engaging in resale price maintenance. Further, it has been reported that in a recent closed-door session in Beijing, a senior Chinese official put pressure on some 30 foreign firms to “confess” any antitrust violations to the enforcement authorities. These developments make clear that multinational companies can expect ever-increasing antitrust scrutiny of their business operations in China—including their local distribution practices.
McDermott Will & Emery and its strategic alliance partner MWE China Law Offices are pleased to offer a complimentary webinar designed for in-house counsel and compliance officers that will provide further details on the new enforcement climate in China and practical guidance on how to mitigate the corresponding heightened legal risks facing companies with Chinese business operations.
