Chinese court issues rules governing private antitrust litigation

According to the SPC, the Rules, which take effect on 1 June, are intended to ease plaintiffs’ burdens and are thus likely to have a significant impact on private enforcement of China’s Anti-monopoly Law. Companies doing business in China may wish to consult with antitrust counsel to minimise their potential exposure to private AML litigation.
