[Upcoming webinar in October] Restarted crackdown! Get ready for government enforcement of Antitrust laws and the FCPA under the Biden administration

October 2021th, 10
[Online Seminar co-sponsored by Baker & McKenzie Law Office/FRONTEO held on October 10st]

Are you ready for federal enforcement under the Biden administration? The Biden administration has clarified its enforcement policy that will include strict extraterritorial application of both antitrust laws and FCPA. Have you completed education, training and system construction for achieving compliance? The enforcement of antitrust laws is centered on GAFA (Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon). While the FCPA continued to be rigorously enforced during the former Trump administration, extraterritorial enforcement of cartels has rarely been implemented since 2017. As a result, enforcement of antitrust laws has been stagnant, but all enforcement actions are now expected to resume under the Biden administration. In this webinar, we will summarize the current situation and explain important problems and countermeasures for Japanese companies.
