It is widely known that it is important to understand antitrust law accurately because there are many situations where the relationship with antitrust law becomes a problem in conducting business, such as cartel / collusion, abuse of dominant bargaining position, and business combination examination. I am.In addition, violations of the Antimonopoly Act are likely to cause various adverse effects such as executive liability, huge surcharges, compensation for damages, and impact on overseas business, and are one of the risk factors that require special attention when conducting business. It can be said that.
On the other hand, antitrust law, unlike other areas of law, underestimates risk and leads to serious consequences or overestimates risk if the content of the rules and the ideas behind them are not clear and the key points are not understood.
