[Webinar held in October] Basics of thinking about antitrust law violation risk that can arise due to new social conditions

October 2021th, 10
[Online seminar co-sponsored by Momo-O, Matsuo, Namba Law Office / FRONTEO held on October 10th]

There are already widespread warnings about cartel risks with regards to so-called sensitive information such as prices, volumes and trading partners.
On the other hand, collaborative efforts among businesses may be spontaneously formed to create new social values. There are also occasions when coordinated efforts are required to respond to new changes in social conditions.
From the perspective of antitrust law and pro-competition, it is probably assumed that this should not be considered problematic.
However, it is important to note that coordinating business activities conducted by "each company on its own" poses cartel risks even if the matters are not related to sensitive information.
In this seminar, we will move away from the concept of "the object of the act" (i.e., caution in handling sensitive information), and rethink cartel risk from the idea of "the mode of the act" (i.e., caution in consideration of coordination and alignment).

Clues can be found in everyday business documents. In this seminar, we will review the basics of antitrust law by focusing on "everyday business documents" that were considered critical evidence in actual cases, as well as the concrete image that abstract legal theories are trying to convey.
