Global Competition Law Training

Many countries around the world, including the United States, Canada and the European Union, have enacted competition laws that make it illegal for organizations to reduce competition by unfair means — e.g., price fixing, bid rigging, group boycotts and agreements to allocate markets or customers. The purpose of these laws is to protect consumers from unfair business practices by ensuring the marketplace remains competitive. The presence of free and fair competition provides consumers with the highest quality goods and services at the lowest prices. If organizations were allowed to use anti-competitive tactics, healthy competition would cease to exist and the market would become distorted.

A failure to comply with competition laws can result in severe financial penalties and damage to the organization’s reputation, as well as criminal and civil sanctions against the individuals involved. Companies can avoid these costly enforcement efforts by instilling a strong culture of corporate compliance and making sure all employees understand how competition laws affect their day-to-day work.
