As markets become increasingly sophisticated and competition intensifies, anti-trust regulations have grown in number and complexity. We understand the difficulties faced by companies in dealing with competition law compliance, as they juggle the convergence of commercial strategies, economics and the law. Particularly, the significant legal divergence between Vietnam and the rest of the world have often led to companies inadvertently breaching the former's anti-trust regulations.

At LNT, we have experience in navigating through even the most highly regulated industries and can deliver practical solutions in an ever-demanding marketplace. We are one of a few law firms in Vietnam with a dedicated team specializing in competition law and lie at the forefront of this field. Having represented and advised numerous multinational companies in competition compliance, our lawyers not only have knowledge of the law, but also understanding of the competitive difficulties companies face in Vietnam.
