Guidance for Companies Developing and Implementing Antitrust Compliance Programs
Authors: Mark R. Hellerer, Jacob R. Sorensen, Fusae Nara, Jessica R. Bogo
Recent policy statements by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division (“DOJ”) highlight the factors companies should consider when developing and implementing antitrust compliance programs.

About that English Law and Arbitration Clause: Consider enforcement implications before signing
Author: Raymond L. Sweigart
As is frequently seen in international commercial contracts, parties with no operations or other relationship to England or the United Kingdom specify English law as controlling, with a clause providing for arbitration of disputes in London. In Cruz City v Unitech & Ors,  EWHC 3131 (Comm), the English High Court was faced with a dispute over enforcement of an arbitral award between a Mauritian claimant and an Indian defendant. Noting the English law policy that judgments of the English court and English arbitration awards should be complied with, and under the principles set out in Masri v Consolidated Contractors International (UK) Ltd (No 2),  EWCA Civ 303, the court held that it was appropriate to enforce an arbitral award by the appointment of receivers over the foreign defendant’s assets.
