The Practitioner's Guide to Antitrust in China

Becky Koblitz
Kluwer Law International
August 2015

Sheppard Mullin’s Yasue (Becky) Nao Koblitz, a special counsel in our Beijing office, recently authored “The Practitioner's Guide to Antitrust in China”, published by Kluwer Law International.  She has decades of legal experience as a prosecutor at the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, as well as in-house counsel for a German subsidiary of a major American real estate development company, and as a lawyer at law firms globally. Her rich experience in the U.S., Europe and China, now often regarded as the three centers of global antitrust and competition law, provided the experience necessary to write a book on China’s antitrust development.

A description of the book is concisely described in the foreword by Su Sun, Vice President of Economists Inc.: 

"Management and legal counsel of foreign companies operating in China as well as those outside China with Chinese business desperately need to keep up with the fast-paced antitrust developments in the most dynamic market in the world.

This book is a quick read that tells what there is to know about China’s antitrust enforcement and includes practical advice and examples for the various aspects of antitrust: dealing with competitors, dealing within the supply chain, mergers, etc. She writes in a straight-forward language such that non-antitrust lawyers can get beyond stock phrases like “illicit price coordination,” “abuse of dominance,” or “unilateral effect.” Her book is a valuable and practical “cookbook” for antitrust compliance training and beyond.

Another feature of the book is that it provides both legal and economic perspectives on antitrust analysis in China, which is important given that economic analysis is increasingly adopted by China’s antitrust agencies and the Chinese courts. Thus understanding the logic and methodology behind economic analysis as applied to Chinese cases is key to conducting proper antitrust legal analysis that is tailored to the Chinese context.”
