Antitrust and Competition

In recent years, there has been a substantial increase in the scope and reach of antitrust and competition enforcement, both domestically and internationally. Competition authorities worldwide are pursuing larger penalties with great determination, emphasizing the profound impact of antitrust and competition laws on corporate operations. MMN is well-versed in managing investigations and merger reviews conducted by the Japan Fair Trade Commission. Moreover, we are among the select few Japanese law firms that handle competition law cases involving Japanese companies on a global scale. This includes handling investigations by foreign authorities, merger reviews, and various litigation, including class actions. We often collaborate with local law firms to effectively navigate these matters.
