Information exchange and related risks, a jurisdictional guide, editors Zoltán Marosi, Marcio Soares ; foreword by Anthony M. Collins - hardcover

The prohibition on exchanging commercially sensitive information among competitors is one of the most fundamental antitrust rules. Companies and individuals may face potential exposure for anticompetitive information exchange, not only in their day-to-day business due to the applicable conduct and behavioral rules, but also in the context of M&A deals due to applicable gun jumping regulations. The Cartels Working Group of the Antitrust Section of the International Bar Association has formulated a comparative guide across 28 jurisdictions, encompassing all global regions, to provide a compendium of best practices and key insights about leading cases, laws and regulations, as well as enforcement trends. Contributed by distinguished practitioners, each chapter provides an overview of the national competition rules and principles that guide information sharing in that jurisdiction, followed by the types of information sharing that may be caught, the enforcement policies and practices of the competition authority and applicable sanctions for parties that are found guilty of an illegal exchange of information. The book also provides a high level overview by the editors outlining trends observed across jurisdictions, to provide insight to the international business community, their advisors as well as to competition authorities.The jurisdictions covered include Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, European Union, Finland, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, and the United States
