Antitrust challenges arise in a multitude of situations: mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, distribution and franchise arrangements, standard setting, intellectual property acquisition and licensing, product and service pricing, advertising, trade association activity and relationships with customers, competitors and employees. In all of these situations, companies need to identify and evaluate possible antitrust risks in order to make an informed decision whether and how to proceed with an agreement, investment or business.
