Allen & OveryAllen & Overy’s antitrust compliance initiative consists in two online tools: "Antitrust practice guides", and, "Antitrust dawn raid guides". The "Antitrust practice guides" are a set of guides, aimed at in-house counsel, covering three important areas of competition law in relation to liability: leniency, individual liability and private enforcement. The guides set out the relevant rules across the EU, the U.S., China and Japan, key EU Member States (including Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden and the UK) as well as Russia, Switzerland and Turkey. The guides can be used to provide a comprehensive description of the rules in a particular jurisdiction and to produce comparisons between the rules and regulations in different jurisdictions. The "Antitrust dawn raid guides" are available on a website that contains jurisdictional guides giving emergency assistance to employees in the event that the company becomes the target of a dawn raid by the European Commission, the U.S. Department of Justice, China’s MOFCOM, or a number of other competition authorities in the EU and beyond.
