Learn why Japanese companies may unknowingly be at risk of violating antitrust laws, as well as about the recent collaborations between the Japanese and U.S. governments on enforcement efforts. Presented by Mari Yamamoto Regnier and Kendall Millard of Barnes & Thornburg, with special guest Tatsuhiro Shindo, Chief Executive Director of JETRO Chicago.
Sponsored by JETRO Chicago, this program will present the basics of U.S. antitrust compliance and will help you understand what your sales force should know before giving sales talks at tradeshows and industry association meetings, and how your corporate representative should discuss joint ventures, supply arrangements and toll manufacturing, especially in competitive situations. Media attention often focuses on antitrust violations of large companies, but it is also important for mid and small-sized companies to be aware of the legal ramifications. This seminar will provide a basic understanding of antitrust compliance for your management and sales forces and introduce the current focus of the Japan and U.S. governments’ joint efforts to aggressively investigate violations. You will learn what types of activities are considered as suppressing competition.
