Our Network Offers Key Insights on Global Laws

Law firm Hogan Lovells’ global antitrust and competition team have partnered with Global Competition Review to create GCR’s recently published Private Litigation Guide.

Global laws are the set of rules, norms, and standards generally recognised as binding between nations.

Hogan Lovells is an American-British law firm co-headquartered in London and Washington, D.C. Hogan Lovells was formed in 2010 by the merger of the American law firm Hogan & Hartson and the British law firm Lovells.

The guide examines the leading issues of the day for antitrust and competition litigation, including answers to pressing questions focused on 13 different countries, allowing the reader to easily compare issues across various jurisdictions.

Competition law is the field of law that promotes or seeks to maintain market competition by regulating anti-competitive conduct by companies.

Competition law is implemented through public and private enforcement. Competition law is known as “antitrust law” in the United States.

In addition to Heaton and Holt serving as editors for the guide, 10 Hogan Lovells lawyers and one law clerk authored country-specific chapters.

With a team of 135 lawyers in 17 countries, alongside its focus on antitrust and competition litigation, Hogan Lovells’ antitrust team assists clients with multinational mergers and joint ventures; cartel, abuse of dominance, and restrictive practice cases; and other investigations.

Our antitrust, competition, and economic regulation practice offers practical support and advice, as well as government agency insight, as our lawyers have worked at the European Commission, the United States Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, and the United Kingdom competition authority.
