Nathalie Jalabert-Doury brings together distinguished practitioners from around the world to provide an in-depth analysis of the legal and practical aspects of competition inspections across 21 major jurisdictions. Each country chapter comprises a series of questions and answers outlining the legal basis and scope of powers under relevant local legislation, the key stages of a dawn raid, the rights and obligations of a company subject to an inspection, and the prospects of judicial review. Illuminated by the expertise of the authors, the chapters outline steps which should be taken to ensure that a company facing an inspection may respond in an efficient manner while minimising legal risk. The book is a necessary and essential guide for both in-house and outside counsel to ensure that an effective internal response strategy is put in place before being confronted with an inspection.
The jurisdictions covered include Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, the Czech Republic, the European Union, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
