This lecture will cover key aspects of U.S. antitrust litigation encountered by Chinese and other non-U.S. companies. We will discuss several noteworthy cases; review typical procedural hurdles that non-U.S. defendants face when navigating the U.S. antitrust litigation process; and consider important jurisdictional issues affecting whether and when U.S. antitrust laws may apply extraterritorially.
