Competition/Consumer Protection Counseling

In our firm, top-tier competition/consumer protection lawyers with extensive knowledge and experience on competition and consumer protection laws, provide strategic legal advice on business plans, distribution, licensing, business alliance, purchasing (the Subcontract Act), promotion (the Act against Unjustifiable Premiums and Misleading Representations) and so forth, enabling clients to achieve their business goals in conformity with competition and consumer protection laws. Generally, such legal advice is likely to be conservative since the criteria for determining the illegality of business conduct under competition and consumer protection laws, are often unclear. We have expertise in providing creative solutions tailored to various business situations, taking the clients' business needs and actual conditions of industries into careful consideration.
