Locke Lord assists our clients in developing and updating their written Antitrust Compliance Policies. These Policies are individually tailored to the particular client’s business and the industry in which it operates. We have a large database of Antitrust Compliance Policies used by different companies and can pick and choose the features that are best suited for our clients.
Our antitrust lawyers provide antitrust compliance training programs to our clients’ officers, in-house counsel and other employees. These programs also are individually tailored to the particular client’s business, the industry in which it operates and the audience attending the program.
In addition, we assist clients with other types of antitrust compliance issues. For example, we provide advice on the antitrust risks associated with the access to confidential business information during due diligence investigations that are required for many large corporate transactions. We also plan and conduct internal antitrust investigations and compliance audits, both of which often are critical components of an effective antitrust compliance policy.
