An antitrust act, or competition law, is a statute designed to restrict market dominance and regulate business practices. In Vietnam, the law extends to all local and foreign entities with possible impacts on domestic market competition.
As a local law firm, Corporate Counsels has the advantage of an in-depth comprehension of the local anticompetition authority. That, coupled with our understanding of antitrust and competition policies, positions us to be the leading lawyers to navigate the investigation and approval process. Our antitrust and competition team comprises seasoned lawyers whose astuteness and efficiency will deliver the smartest solution. We do not shy away from a case with challenging circumstances, which is why our clients have come to place their trust in us when stakes are the highest.
We have witnessed companies undergo stress and have their time and effort drained by the government investigation process. For that reason, Corporate Counsels would like to use our expertise to elevate the burden from our clients, help them redirect their resources to their specialty, and defend their legal interests.
Antitrust & Competition Law Advice
Our team of skilled lawyers and our collective experience with the enforcement authorities in Vietnam are integral in establishing Corporate Counsels as one of the leading Antitrust & Competition Law legal advisors. Not only have our frequent negotiations with government authorities about antitrust compliance given us incredible insight into the regulations’ mechanisms but they have also moulded our robust credibility as a legal practitioner and representative.
Henceforth, our antitrust lawyers possess the tools to analyse the specific situation at hand, customise a solution to prevent or suspend government investigations, and help our clients gain immunity in anticompetition cases.
Relying on our strong relationships with anticompetition officials, our lawyers have had great success in obtaining antitrust exemption and merger clearance for many mergers in Vietnam whilst preserving the integrity and structure of the transaction as our client initially intended. Our years in the industry have likewise lent us the tact to resolve any conflicts and apply any corrective measures to acquire approval from the appropriate State agency.
Very rarely do our clients’ merger ventures have to be brought to court, which further testifies to our capability. Our legal services include consultation on the national antitrust law and the structure of the deal, drafting of documentation and presentations, responding with remedies during the investigation process, and litigating an antitrust challenge if necessary.
