Global antitrust enforcement
Antitrust authorities worldwide continued their vigorous enforcement against anti-competitive conduct in 2022.
With a raft of new legislation and policies coming into play, authorities employing creative and innovative approaches in the exercise of their investigative powers and ongoing developments in the private damages litigation arena, global antitrust enforcement looks more uncertain in 2023. As a result, regular appraisal of antitrust risk exposure is a clear business imperative.
Our report explores the shifts in the global enforcement landscape. We analyse data from 30 global jurisdictions and identify the key developments and themes shaping authorities’ activities. We examine cartels and non-cartel conduct, including vertical and restrictive price maintenance arrangements and abuse of dominance.
In particular, we identify the sectors and types of conduct facing continuing regulatory scrutiny and highlight issues posing particular risks.
