Business Risks and Mitigation Strategies for Japanese Companies in an Era of Increased Antitrust Enforcement

September 2016

Listen to Recording (CLE/CPD Credit Available)

Japanese companies have increasingly become the target of aggressive U.S. antitrust enforcement and litigation. This program features a panel discussion with participants from The Japan Institute for Overseas Investment (JOI), K&L Gates and FTI Consulting. The discussion focuses on how Japanese companies can reduce risks, employ mitigation strategies, and implement or enhance compliance efforts. Much of this discussion is applicable to a wide range of government enforcement-related proceedings in addition to antitrust. 
This program addresses issues and strategies relating to: 

  • Mitigating criminal, cartel, and civil litigation risks, including the increase in corporate fines and penalties; prosecution of executives; foreign data productions; and concerns relating to confidentiality of internal investigations. 
  • Implementing effective compliance approaches in both the U.S. and Japan, including foreign-based conduct, acquisition due diligence, and behavior screening.  
  • Promoting efficient data collection and review for internal investigations and litigation, including strategies that companies can implement immediately that will save future time and expense.
