Business Counseling and Compliance Vedder Powered
A central focus of our approach is to help you avoid potential antitrust risks through ongoing business counseling and compliance programs. We also help identify anticompetitive conduct that may threaten your organization, and practical options for addressing these concerns.
We assist with the full range of business conduct that gives rise to potential antitrust risks, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, intellectual property procurement and licensing, participation in trade groups and standards organizations, supply and distribution agreements, pricing and distribution practices, marketing and advertising, and information exchanges.
We work with businesses and trade groups to adopt and administer formal antitrust compliance programs. In addition to drafting written policies and procedures, we assist with educating staff, train compliance officers on internal monitoring and audit procedures, and counsel management on responding to material compliance concerns that arise.
