Understanding the nuances of competition laws across geographies is critical in today’s global economy, as companies seek to do more business with or from important markets like China. Brattle’s team is skilled in navigating the economic landscape in the Greater China area.

Our clients – including China-based companies, regulatory agencies, financial and accounting institutions, major law firms, and multinational corporations – benefit from Brattle’s broad experience providing qualitative and quantitative analyses of monopolization and abuse of dominance, vertical restraints, merger control, and cartels. We apply rigorous analyses to issues in the marketplace, and our experts have scrutinized industry questions and claims in Anti-Monopoly Law (AML) and regulatory cases.

When presented with a challenge, we work tirelessly to provide clear, independent answers. In situations leading to investigations or litigation, our consultants have acted as expert witnesses in China’s courts and have submitted reports before the Supreme People’s Court of China, Provincial Higher Courts, the State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR), the Anti-Monopoly Bureau of the Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM), the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), and the Shanghai Administration for Market Regulation (SHAMR), among others.

Our China-focused competition team has the right combination of local and global experience. Largely composed of experts who are Chinese nationals and bilingual in English and Chinese, 80% of the team hold PhDs in economics from the US or the EU. This team is further supported by our global network of competition consultants, which provides clients with a broad spectrum of support for cross-border and multinational competition matters. Thanks to the expertise our multidisciplinary teams provide, we have worked on matters related to intellectual property rights, FRAND, payment cards, finance, technology, fintech, healthcare, and pharmaceuticals.
