Antitrust laws are relevant to healthcare and life sciences companies looking to expand, needing to defend themselves against attacks from competitors and antitrust agencies, and wanting to keep their businesses focused on commercial issues rather than on litigation and seemingly endless investigations. We have commercial and dispute resolution lawyers with particular expertise in antitrust and competition law specializing in a wide range of Japanese antitrust law matters, including merger control, unfair competition, cartels and unfair trade practices. Their expertise includes unique regulatory issues in the Japanese pharmaceutical and medical device industry under the Fair Competition Rules promulgated by industry associations and endorsed by the Fair Trade Commission of Japan.
