Growth is the goal of business leaders worldwide. However, the more a company grows and expands, the more interest regulators will take in monitoring their activities
With the spotlight fixed on your business, compliance with ever-changing antitrust and competition law is crucial to your continued success. Whether you are the founder of a start-up, the owner of a small-medium enterprise, or the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, assessing your business activities from the perspective of an anti-trust regulator is critical in identifying red flags early on.
Markets require competition to thrive and rules to enable entrepreneurs to succeed. As your business grows to become a dominant player in the market – even a small-medium enterprise operating at the local level – you must ensure that your business does not abuse its position (such as by stifling competition, creating a monopoly or coordinating with competitors to fix prices).
Furthermore, your company may wish to grow by acquiring other companies or you may wish to be acquired by or merge with another organization. In such instances, you must be sure that deals of this nature won’t stifle competitors in the same space.
Unfortunately, in the world of anti-trust and competition law, there is no fixed rule or checklist against which you can measure your activities to ensure compliance.So, how are business leaders supposed to navigate this extremely complex area, when they’ve got so much else on their plate?
