We are pleased to invite you to our seminar addressing recent developments in Japanese, U.S., and European Competition Law.

The Anti Monopoly Act (the "AMA"), or competition law, will be a key consideration for Japanese business next year, as it will significantly expand the antitrust investigation and enforcement authority of the Japan Fair Trade Commission. Those companies doing multinational business should also keep abreast, however, of the latest developments in antitrust law in other key jurisdictions to successfully achieve their business goals. Prominent antitrust lawyers of Morrison & Foerster LLP in each of Japan, US and EU will make presentations on the most recent developments in antitrust law in their respective jurisdictions and will also address how these jurisdictions may apply different standards in assessing the lawfulness of a company's unified global business strategy.


Kei Amemiya, Ito & Mitomi / Morrison & Foerster Tokyo Office will address the new Anti Monopoly Act, which will come into force next year. Mr. Amemiya will discuss what companies need to know about changes in the AMA and how those changes may affect their business. Mr. Amemiya, a leading antitrust attorney in Japan, will present a roadmap to help companies avoid pitfalls under the new AMA. He will also discuss JFTC's merger review enforcement trends since it published new merger review guidelines last year.

W. Stephen Smith, co-chair of the firm's Antitrust Practice Group will address recent developments in U.S. antitrust law.
Antitrust issues arising from mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures - including acquisitions of non-controlling interests - remain at the top of the U.S. antitrust agencies' enforcement agenda. The U.S. agencies continue to seek divestitures in most transactions that are subject to detailed investigations. Recently, however, the U.S. agencies have lost three major merger cases in court. Mr. Smith, who has represented parties in several multi-billion dollar transactions in the last few years, will discuss what these enforcement trends mean for Japanese companies involved in mergers, acquisitions or strategic alliances.
Kathyleen O'Brien, a leading antitrust litigator in Morrison & Foerster's Los Angeles Office will discuss Litigating in the Intersection of Antitrust and Intellectual Property Rights.

Rony Gerrits, a well-known competition law expert in Morrison & Foerster's Brussels Office, will address recent developments in EU competition law, with special emphasis on Article 82 EC Treaty and leniency applications under EC Competition Law.
EC competition law, originally enacted in the 1960s, has been completely reformulated during the past five years. A new set of rules has been adopted, which focus on the economic effects of an agreement, rather than singling out specific contractual provisions. The only piece of the puzzle that is missing is the modernization of Article 82 EC Treaty, which is expected to be modified in the coming months. Also following the federalization of EC competition law, the 25 Member States obtained the power to apply Article 81 EC Treaty. This raises a number of novel questions, particularly in the context of leniency applications. This presentation will focus on the differences between the EU and Member State leniency programs, and how this impacts on a company's decision whether or not to cooperate.


The panel will explore a hypothetical case based on actual cases in Japan, US and EU in which an influential company with market power tries to set up a new business structure that will impact its major competitors' ability to deal with customers. The panelists will have an active discussion of how each jurisdiction would treat this business structure under its antitrust laws and how the company can implement a unified global strategy.
