The enactment of the Competition Act 2004 ushers in a new regime for anti-competition law in the business industry. It promotes the effective functioning of local markets and enhances the competitiveness of the economy by prohibiting anti-competitive activities that seek to unduly restrict, prevent or distort competition. To this effect, the Act established the Competition Commission of Singapore, which enforces these anti-competition laws.
This book, the first of its kind in Singapore, aims to give in-house counsels, lawyers and businessmen a headstart in the up-and-coming field of competition law. It gives the reader an insight into the practice of competition law and highlights the possible implications of the Act on businesses in Singapore.
The book also considers the effects of globalisation, conflicts and harmonisation of competition laws and their practical effects on local businesses.
It also lists the procedure businesses should adopt so that they do not fall foul of the Act. The text includes reference to some of the leading cases decided on the subject in the United States, Europe and Australia, making this a must-have for all in-house counsels, competition lawyers, businessmen and all interested in gaining an insight into competition law.
This is a book by three of the most established individuals in the field of competition law in the region. This book is expected to quickly position itself as the definitive text of competition law in Singapore.
- An Understanding of Anti-Competitive Agreements: What You Should Know
- The Duties of a Dominant Firm
