In the United States, anti-competitive behavior, such as price-fixing, market allocation, and bid rigging, have long been considered illegal. The laws prohibiting such conduct seek to ensure that our markets operate by rules of fair play, free of collusion and manipulation. Those injured by such anti-competitive practices, have long been able to recover for their injuries here in the United States.
The principles that underlie the prohibitions on anti-competitive behavior in the United States are not confined to its borders. As trade becomes more global, and the world becomes more interconnected, the abilities of victims to recover for violations of competition law throughout the world have increased as well. Victims of competition law violations outside of the United States, have the ability to recover for their injuries in U.S. courts, and also, outside of the U.S. under non-U.S. law.
