Appellate Court Ruling Makes It Easier to Apply US Antitrust Laws to Foreign Conduct

    View Authors June 2014
    The extent to which foreign conduct can run afoul of the US antitrust laws remains an unsettled question. Recent cases related to that question were before three US appellate courts. One of the three, the Second Circuit, issued an opinion last week that makes it easier to apply US antitrust laws to anticompetitive conduct that occurs outside the US. This publication reviews the court’s decisions and its impact on global business entities and how they manage their antitrust matters moving forward.
